Bosnian survives car accident on a mined hillside –

Posted by:

TUZLA, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — A Bosnia man is recovering in a hospital after veering off a windy mountain road in his car and rolling down a hillside still dotted with mines from the 1992-95 war.

Rasim Dzeko’s car slid 50 meters (yards) off the road Tuesday before hitting a tree. The 40 year-old extricated himself from the car but then slid another 300 meters down a mined slope, getting stuck in a water hole for two days.

A friend of Dzeko’s, Hazim Mujcinovic, said Dzeko had no idea he was in a mined area and could have triggered a mine had he managed to get out. Mujcinovic said ‘‘a higher force’’ must have intervened.
