Police scramble to dismantle a massive World War II bomb discovered decades later in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a bustling city with one of the densest populations. The city also has more buildings higher than 500 ft than any other city according to Wikipedia. So, one can only imagine the amount of stress that arose when an active bomb from the World War II era was found at a construction site.
Construction workers discovered a one-ton US Navy ANM66 bomb working late one night. Hong Kong police were notified and 2,260 people were evacuated. Bomb disposal experts successfully dismantled the bomb after 15 hours.
“It was the biggest bomb ever found in Hong Kong," a police spokeswoman said. It is believed that the bomb was dropped by the U.S. during World War II when Japan occupied Hong Kong.

The bomb experts had to drill holes into the shell to remove the large amount of explosives inside the bomb. Whoever had the drilling job must have a heart of steel.
