Officials hope to defuse 5,000 pound bomb from World War II

Don't Miss

Experts were trying to defuse a 5,000-ound, 19-foot, WWII bomb today without having it go off.

But as you can see, it did not quite go the way they expected.

British Troops dropped it on the Polish waterway in 1945 while trying to fight the Nazis, but it sat there, just 40 feet underwater and it did not go off until today.
