Soccer Grenade: Iran Field Sees Explosive Thrown

By: Amanda Crum - September 20, 2012

Reports are early and not too detailed, but according to this video–which was uploaded on YouTube–some “fans” threw an object onto an Iranian soccer field during a match. A player, thinking it was trash, picked it up and tossed it aside, only to see it explode on impact. Two seconds was all it might have taken for a very different outcome.

No injuries have been reported, and authorities are investigating the incident.
