WWII-era missile explodes in kitchen while Polish woman cleans
UPI News Service, 06/12/2013
Police in Poland said a woman was hospitalized with injuries incurred when she accidentally detonated an anti-aircraft missile while cleaning her kitchen.
Investigators said the incident at the Strzyszow home was initially thought to be the result of an exploded gas cylinder, but they soon discovered the 56-year-old woman apparently knocked over a World War II-era missile stored behind a kitchen cupboard while sweeping the floor, Polskie Radio reported Wednesday.
Police said the woman's husband brought the object to their home years ago and the family had assumed it was no longer active.
