Hong Kong, China A second WWII era UXO was discovered on the construction site in China where the EOD teams had recently diffused a nearby 1,000 pound bomb. The second bomb was also reported to be a WWII era 1,000 bomb. However, this one was harder to deal with because the fuse had been badly damaged making it unsafe to move.
The EOD team opted to conduct a render safe operation in order to be able to safely move the bomb. So, for the second time in a week, nearly 4,000 residents and businesses were evacuated. The evacuation even halted nearby ferry services.
The render safe operation took the EOD team 24 hours to perform the operation. After the successful operation, the item was safely disposed of.
