On 31st May 2012, an old and rusty mine was found in a popular beach in Didim, Aydın.
A swimmer notified the local police about an odd-shaped rusty metal object laying on the sea floor after she/he injured her/his feed by it. The local police turned to the coast guard for help. Eventually the Navy EOD teams arrived at the beach and after two days work the mine was dragged out of the water to be disposed.
The naval EOD experts stated that the mine was from First World War and was at least one hundred years old and thankfully it was no longer functional.
