Bizarre defence ministry footage of training gone wrong

31/1/19 - Belgian Defence News has released a remarkable video showing how a young soldier falls out of a van during manoeuvres at Marche-en-Famenne.  The soldier opens the van door in order to shoot, but loses his balance and falls out of the vehicle. After his fall he was dragged along by the vehicle because he was caught by his seat belt. The soldier sustained a sprained ankle. The soldiers were playing the enemy and shooting at soldiers defending Belgium.  Fortunately they were employing blanks.
