When we arrived to the site the team leader gave us the morning safety brief and he warned us to be very alert about as we work on mine clusters, at 07:30 am I entered my site and the team leader came to direct me to make more space in the clearing area of missing mines, he told me to move to lane one later after finishing my work at the missing mine, lane one is a mixed mine area( has both types of mines M15 and M14 ) and asked me to clear M14 mines because the anti tank mines are already cleared, I took my tools and went to that direction, when I arrived I started to clear a cluster. I was working on 9 o’clock mine from the inner row and I put the measuring ruler, I checked the first box but no signal appeared then I moved the ruler to the front to clear the other box and I found a signal I pointed it, I put the triangle marker and started raking to reach the signal and while am progressing toward the signal using the heavy rake the accident happened , I walked out of the field on my feet.
