Incident or Near Miss? “Fla. fisherman hooks live missile in Gulf waters”… UPDATE (Not a Live Missile)
Update: Missile was NOT LIVE….. does this now condone the actions taken? No, all weapons are considered live until proven otherwise. The questions below still stand.
Here are some questions following a live catch of a missile while fishing.
1. What kind of bait do you use for missiles … little fishing boats?
2. What do you do if you catch a LIVE MISSILE that is corroded and unstable?…. I know, keep it on your boat for ten days and then turn it in to the authorities.
3. What do you do if a live missile gets loose and runs away? …. I might need a little help on this one.
Wow, I don’t know the charge in the missile, but this could have turned out really bad. The question is what type of investigation would this need to keep it from happening again. After all, no property damage or injury… it might just get an “Apparent Cause” analysis. That works, right?
