Video: Trainee police officer accidentally throws grenade at fellow classmates

We don’t think this UPP trainee in Brazil will have too many friends left in her class following this explosive near miss…

During a training session with the Brazilian Police Pacification Unit, known in Brazil as the Unidade de Polícia Pacificadora or UPP, one trainee nearly caused a major incident after she failed to release a training grenade in time and instead launched it into a group of her fellow peers.

Thankfully, the grenade - which appears to be more of a flash bang than a frag grenade - misses the rest of the class and everyone eventually has a good laugh about the whole incident… at the expense of the poor girl in question.

Warning: the video below gets fairly loud as everyone scrambles out of the way of the explosion, so if you’re listening with headphones then you might want to turn the volume down a touch.
