DDAS, 2000, Kosovo, detection
Anxious to speed up progress, the victim decided to carry out a "reconnaissance". He checked a detector by passing it over his boot and in the air, then started to clear his way into the uncleared area ahead of the safe lane. He proceeded by checking a small area for each foot and stepping onto it if the detector did not signal. Having gone five metres in one direction, he could see that what he had thought was his target was not, and so turned the other way. His route traced a semi-circle. When he had passed in front of the safe lane to the other side, he stepped on a mine. The time of this was recorded as 17:05.
