Man Is Blown Up Yards From Odesa Beach On Ukraine's Mine-Filled Coast

A man swimming in the sea off an Odesa beach in Ukraine has been blown up in front of his family by an apparent mine.

Footage shared by Odesa Region Police shows the sudden blast yards from the shore, scattering the 50-year-old’s body parts across the beach as his distressed wife, son and friend watched on.

While it is not yet clear what caused the explosion, swimming in the area is banned because of mines planted amid the ongoing Russia war.

The video shows people running on the beach towards the water when the explosion occurs, stopping them in their tracks.

The man, who has not been named, washed up on the shore as police arrived on the scene.

The victim’s friend had been swimming with him at the time but was uninjured in the blast.


The Odesa Region Police said in a statement on Saturday: ‘Police urge residents and guests of Odesa region to strictly follow the rules of martial law: do not go to the coastal protection zone of the Black Sea, do not swim in the mined sea.

‘Today, the neglect of safety rules by a family from Donetsk region has led to tragic consequences. While swimming in the sea in one of the villages of Odesa district, an explosion of an unknown object killed a 50-year-old man in front of his wife, son and friend. The latter miraculously did not suffer, because he went swimming with the victim.

‘Now there is an investigative task force of the territorial unit of police and explosives. Once again, a strict ban on visiting the coast and swimming in the sea are security measures that are life-threatening if neglected.’

Ukraine has accused Russia of deliberately mining the Black Sea, while Kremlin forces say they were laid by Kyiv.
