Google Translate: "This is a long-term chemical detonator, which I did not defuse, I'm not tired of life," said the Munich Spengmeister (bomb expert) Diethard Posorski. The bomb, Posorski, "inserted vertically into the ground. Two thirds are exposed.'s Head with the ignite is still in the ground. This is the problem."
Sobieralski (another bomb expert) later tried to solve the detonator from a safe distance with the help of a Silkonstruktion. But he had no chance. Translation stop.
The bomb weight about 250 kg = 550 pounds. Around the bomb authorities stacked lots of straw to prevent the shock wave from spreading. The explosion was way heavier than expected. Burning straw flew in homes and stores and set them on fire. Almost every window around the bomb shattered. Local residents complained about taking straw, witch easily burn, to absorb the detonation.
But authorities replied:
Google Translate:"Straw is lightweight and has excellent insulation properties," said a spokesman. "It also can be adapted on the fly in large quantities. Which material would have to assume otherwise?" Worldwide will work at blasting with straw.
2500 people had to leave their homes for safety reasons - they spent the night in haste established collective centers. Translation stop
The major of Munich said: „Man hätte nicht einfach zuwarten können“, sagte er. „Im Nachhinein haben wir eine anschauliche Vorstellung davon, was alles hätte passieren können und da sind wir glimpflich davongekommen.“
Google Translate: "They could not have just wait," he said. "In hindsight, we have a vivid idea of what could have happened, and we got away unscathed."
All in all: Happy end and good work.
