It is an illegal practice in France, in particular for the risks it can generate.

Magnet fishermen had a narrow escape on Thursday afternoon, when they were near the Saint-Mihiel bridge in Nantes.

From the Erdre, they indeed brought up a shell of almost 4 cm, report the firefighters who intervened on the scene shortly after 1:30 p.m.

After examining the machine, it turned out that the risk of explosion was very real!

The demining services recovered the object and "a security perimeter was set up for the duration of the operation", indicate the firefighters.
