In Mizhhirya district, two men tried to dismantle a shell that exploded. One of them died, the other one is in hospital

An accident occurred today (26.01) in the evening in the village of Torun in Mizhhirya district. In a private yard, two local residents tried to dismantle a shell which exploded. As a result, one of them (57-year-old) died on the spot, and the other one (51-year-old neighbor) was brought to the hospital.
- Most likely, the men found the ammunition somewhere on the outskirts and tried to dismantle it using a hammer to sell as scrap metal, - the head of the Regional State Administration Hennadiy Moskal said. - More specific information will be known later because the wounded man is in a state of shock and can not explain what happened.

The age of the shell is not yet known. Now, rescuers and experts are working at the scene.
