Kids playing ‘nuclear reactor’ prompt German police alert 德國男童的「核子反應器」引發警方高度警戒

Two six-year-old boys pretending to have built a mini nuclear power plant prompted German police and the fire brigade to clear their street, authorities said.

The schoolchildren in the western town of Oelde had built the nuclear reactor mock-up out of a computer casing and taped a “radioactivity warning” they had printed out from the Internet on its side.

“When the boys returned to their ‘nuclear power plant’ from a brief stop at home they were sent away again as the area and a wide radius around it had been cleared and blocked off,” police said in a statement.

Residents were ordered not to leave their homes and firefighters tested for a radioactive leak.

The boys’ parents were in the dark about their offspring’s exploits and thought the fire department was conducting a drill until they read about the operation online and what led to it. They reported to the police station and explained their six-year-olds had not managed to build an actual nuclear reactor.

德國警消單位表示,兩名六歲男童自稱建造了一座微型核能發電廠,導致警方和消防隊淨空該街區。

德國西部歐德鎮上的兩名學童利用電腦主機殼做成核子反應器模型,並在外側貼上從網路上印下來的「輻射危險」警語。

警方在一份聲明中表示:「這兩名男孩回家稍作停留再返回他們的『核電廠』時,又被警方送走,因為該區域和方圓百里之內都已經被封鎖淨空了。」

警方下令當地居民待在家裡不要出門,消防隊員則測試是否有輻射外洩。

兩位男童的父母對他們孩子的「創舉」毫不知情,還以為是消防單位在進行演習,直到在網路上看到這場淨空行動的消息和起因後才了解狀況。他們向警局通報並解釋,他們六歲大的孩子並不是真的要造核子反應器。
