Russian fisherman use hand grenades tossed from boat, things go badly VIDEO
Two men from Russia are lucky to be alive after their hand grenade fishing trip resulted in an explosion to close to repeat.
The YouTube video reveal one man dropping the grenade, from their inflatable boat, which exploded early just as it hit the water knocking the men over and equipment flying into the water.
The explosion did not destroy the boat but the men remain still, stunned by the premature blast but seemed able to get up a few moments afterward.
Website LiveLeak.com posted the video online on Monday and it has already been watched more than 100,000 times and another 10,000 on YouTube.
Hand grenades are a common, but environmentally catastrophic, way of catching fish in some parts of the world.
The explosives are usually detonated underwater allowing the fisherman to collect the dead fish as they float to the surface.
