Surviving a grenade blast is possible, and now thanks to science buffs Mark Rober and Kevin from BackyardScientist, we know how.

Many people think that they have a better chance of surviving a grenade blast if they are under water. Well, that’s not entirely true.

How to Survive a Grenade Blast – Are Grenades Deadlier on Land or Under Water?

Mark and Kevin strongly disagree with that theory. You see, when a grenade explodes, the metal casing of the grenade fractures, and fires the shrapnels in all directions. But there’s also a pressure wave that’s created from the explosion itself.

On land, the chances of your survival can be substantially improved. All you need to do i lay down on your stomach with your feet towards the blast. If you are at least 15 feet away, you may get hit with a few shrapnels in your feet, but you will survive.

But under water, the explosion creates a serious pressure wave, which will compress your lungs. Even at 15 feet away, you would be 100% dead.
