Bomb Fishing

September 28, 2008

This woman's husband was killed while handling UXO.

A young widow discusses the accident that killed her husband.  They were a poor couple who had recently experienced the death of their only child.  The man envisioned using explosives harvested from old ordnance to stun fish, a practice the Lao call “bomb fishing.”  His desperate effort led to his death.

WHWV produced this video and is showing it in Lao villages to discourage dangerous practices.
