    Really good paper on why jumping into the pool is a much worse idea than the pool deck:

    I know that this would be a situation where you would panic but why don't you quickly kick the grenade on the land into the pool

    I wonder if the air pockets in the human body which have been identified as the major vulnerability are as compressible as balloons filled half with water and half with air?

    Of course the new grenades (new since 1968) are made to look like an olive drab baseball, and have a lot more pieces of frag in them. And; and produce an injury radius of 15 meters (49 ft), with a fatality radius of 5 meters (16 ft), though some fragments can disperse as far out as 250 meters (820 ft), Thanks Wikipedia and my time in basic training..

    Put the balloons 15 feet away from the blast, then watch how much the balloons are disrupted compared to the the ones close to the blat.

    I still would've jumped into the pool and then would've tried to lay on top of the water. By doing that no fragments can hit me and my airfilled bodyparts are not surrounded by water. But that's just a theory and it could be hard to perform in less than 5 seconds. So the better way is to not drop your frags. :D

    The person in the water will survive because the shrapnel from the grenade will have time to slow down before impacting the person in the water, which directly contrasts the person on land which is getting hit with the full force of the grenade's shrapnel.

    Is it truly verified, though? Fish have huge air bladders all over their body for buoyancy. Our lungs, sinuses, brain .. are all enclosed in bones and muscle. What if we tense up our muscles during the explosion? What would happen if you wrapped the half-air balloons in chicken wire and duct tape? And what if there were many tiny small balloons inside instead of one big one?

    Grenades are more shaped like baseballs these days than these WW2 pattern ones. The next ones break out into much smaller (and faster) fragments. The best way to survive the fragmentation effects of a grenade are -believe it or not- to be relatively close to it. The fragments usually spray upward and outward, pushing against the ground. I watched several blow up in the Army. they also don't blow up like a fireball like in the movies, the blast itself is usually a dirty brown cloud, followed by the skittering sounds of shrapnel passing through anything nearby.

    The best way to survive is to kick the grenade on the ground into the pool, as for your friend in the water; just make sure you kick the grenade in such a way that when it explodes, it creates an interference with the first grenade in the pool and cancel out both waves created in the explosions. This way both you and your friend will be safe, at least that's what you should tell your conscience :P

    I was right, but it was more of a guess, and i had time to think about all the effects an explosion can cause. I thought about the compression also, but to be honest, in a sudden situation i'm not sure how I would have responded before seeing this confirm my thoughts. Thanks for sharing this.
