Hand grenade throwing went horribly wrong in China

A hand grenade throwing exercise went horribly wrong in China when a recruit's throw had his grenade hit a sandbag wall instead of over it. The live hand grenade bounced back and landed into the ditch beside the recruit and the instructor.

The quick-witted instructor nimbly dived into the other side of the ditch, dragging the recruit together with him, saving his life, before the grenade exploded in seconds. What puzzled me is the instructor actually rose up and began clearing the mess coolly and naturally to prepare for the next hand grenade thrower, as if such incident is common anyway. Hope not.

A short 48-seconds video clip showing the incident captured over 1.8 million viewers so far. Watch the video below.
