    A fisherman from Vietnam Tran Minh Thanh had to appeal to local border guards after his nets caught something extremely interesting – but also insanely dangerous.

    A fisherman reportedly caught a Yu-6 torpedo four miles off the Vietnamese coast. As seen in the footage, Chinese markings indicate that it was used during the exercises of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). It is unclear, however, how the torpedo could have drifted towards the Vietnamese shore.
