DDAS, 2004, Sri Lanka, excavation
The deminer was working in his clearance lane using a heavy rake to excavate the ground. The ground was very hard and use of the light rake was limited. At approximately 0710hrs an explosion occurred under the rake. The deminer was not wearing his visor correctly and as a result incurred facial injuries as outlined below.
