Colombian Bomb Technician Takes One on the Chin and Survives

Published July 29, 2022

A Colombian police bomb technician, fully dressed in what appears to be a MEDENG EOD-9 bomb suit, approaches a 20 kg explosive device that was reportedly attached to an abandoned motorcycle.


This incident occurred in a residential area of Cauca, Colombia in June of 2022 and things didn’t go as planned for the officer tasked with making this “problem” go away. The device detonated and sent him to the hospital with serious injuries. Believe it or not, he fortunately managed to survive and probably took away a valuable lesson.


Aside from the obvious questions related to effort vs outcome, any causal viewer of this video would question as to why the officer was in that position to begin with. Common practice in the PSBT/EOD world is to start remote and stay remote. Also, don’t touch “stuff” that you don’t have to. It would be interesting to hear why a remote render safe procedure (i.e. blow the device in place) was the less desired option. Let us know down in the comments why you think the EOD technician chose this route.
