A 500-pound vintage bomb was discovered at a construction  site in Abong Abong Pasonanca last Thursday.

Pasonanca Barangay Captain Jun Julian said that construction workers discovered the bomb buried in a construction site in Abong Abong Murok road.

A pay loader had to be used to transfer the explosive from the site where it was discovered to the Bomb Squad vehicle.

SPO4 Benjamin Rubio, Bomb Squad Team Leader, identified the explosive as a general purpose bomb loaded on airplanes for use during air strikes.

Rubio said there is a big possibility that the bomb might have  exploded if handled incorrectly.

Bomb Squad personnel transported the bomb to their  headquarters for proper disposition.  (E-media)
