TANZA, Cavite – Two vintage bombs on Wednesday were found in San Nicolas Shoal in this town.

Philippine Coast Guard Cavite said they received a phone call from MV Vasco Da Gama regarding the discovered bombs.

PCG personnel immediately made a coordination with the vessel management and advised to cordon the area, according to PCG- Cavite commander Lt Michael Encina.

Members of the PCG-Explosive Ordnance Division, PCG Vessel 271 and Metal Shark 1102 went to the place to provide safety explosive handling to prevent sudden explosion of the vintage bombs.

“While getting soil sample, sumama po sa paghukay ng machine ng MV Vasco Da Gama itong dalawang vintage bombs,” Encina said.

The EOD team successfully extracted the vintage bombs to be brought to the disposing location in Manila.
