    Man dies opening grenade with sledgehammer

    Tue Aug 8, 9:30 PM ET

    RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) - A Brazilian man died on Tuesday when he tried to open what police believe was a rocket-propelled grenade with a sledgehammer in a mechanical workshop on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro.

    Another man who was in the workshop at the time of the explosion was rushed to a hospital with severe burns, a police officer told Reuters. The workshop was destroyed and several cars parked outside caught fire.

    Police found several unexploded army issue rocket-propelled grenades in the workshop. They believe the ammunition had been brought there by scavengers wanting to sell them as scrap metal, but they also are investigating a possible link to Rio's heavily armed drug gangs who often raid military bases.

    No matter how stupid you are hitting a rocket/grenade/bomb should never sound like a good idea. I bet that guy is gonna win a Darwin Award.

    The only thing that I think is more weird than him hitting it with a hammer IS THAT HE DIDNT WANT TO USE IT INSTEAD!

    He was trying to take it apart for scrap metal. You'd think he could have sold it for more than it's scrap worth.
