DDAS, 2010, Afghanistan, excavation, PMN-2, AP


The accident occurred on 22 June 2010, 09:30 AM in clearance lane of [the Victim], located in a steep sloping area within the MF. He was busy in full excavation there, suddenly some stones and soil slipped down in front of him and caused a PMN2 mine to go off. The ground where [the Victim] was working was of a loose and sliding nature, so it slipped down and directly hit the mine and caused the accident. So this was an unpreventable accident in nature, but as it seems from the location and severity of injuries, the visor was not used properly during the operation. Although he got some injuries on his face and shoulders, but the victim deminer was finally evacuated to Pakistan for the treatment of his eyes injuries.
