Not the kind of thing you stumble upon everyday, but a diver believes he has discovered the long lost unexploded nuclear bomb off the coast of Canada that has been missing for over 50 years.

The Telegraph claims that diver, Sean Smyrichinsky, first thought he had unearthed a UFO before realising he may have finally solved a half-a-century long mystery of a missing bomb.

Average day then.

Over 60-years ago near British Columbia, the American Bomber plane crashed whilst heading to Texas for a simulated nuclear air strike when disastrously its engines caught on fire, sadly killing five of its 17 crew.

The question now is if it is unexploded…is it safe?

The Canadian government are heading straight over to check it out as as even though they say it does not contain any ‘active’ nuclear material, the American military say it was filled with lead, uranium and TNT.

However, they claim it would not be enough to cause a nuclear explosion as it does not contain plutonium.

Good to know…
