On 13 August 2009 at 07:15 am while [the victim] deminer was excavating a excavating a dog indication in an access lane, his pick touched on the top of PMN 2 anti-personnel mine and caused it to go off. According to the investigation report the deminer has used the pickaxe to investigate the signal found in dog indication instead of the bayonet and it seems as he used the pick directly on the top of signal, so hit the mine and caused the accident. From the location of injuries it seems the deminer has not used his PPE and visor properly, he got multiple injures on his body, and face/eyes as well.
