Fishermen Reel in 26-Foot-Long WWII Torpedo Inside Their Net

A fisherman landed an explosive catch while out trawling for fish along the sea bed in Denmark that was later revealed to be an undetonated World War II torpedo. Danish fisherman René Kloster alerted the country’s authorities after the torpedo became entangled in the net several miles off the west coast of the Jutland peninsula on Saturday, July 1. Kloster, captain of the fishing vessel St. Anthony, said that the torpedo was later detonated away from the coast.  “It was huge. I have never seen such a big torpedo before. It is quite incomprehensible that such a big one comes up. You just have to catch your breath afterward.” Kloster said that this is the third time he has pulled up a torpedo. photos, >click to read< 09:47
