While working on a construction site, it is not uncommon to find items that may appear out of place. Whether it’s jewelry, antiques, and in some cases ancient artifacts, it’s easy for things to burrow underground, only to be discovered years later by construction workers who dig in the earth. However, a construction crew in Germany couldn’t believe their eyes when they discovered a deadly object that was buried deep beneath the floor of a busy city. Once they realized what it was, they knew it wasn’t just their life that was in danger.
Like any other day
In 2016, a construction team was working in Augsburg, one of the oldest cities in Germany. At the time, they were in a good mood as the job was going well and they hadn’t encountered any major issues at this point, which is rare when working on a construction site. However, once their digging tools hit a large object, they stopped their work. From that moment they knew it was something out of the ordinary.
