Missing Nuclear Gauges used in construction work it happens more often than you think
You hear this story every couple of years a special gauge used to determine the density of road materials and moisture content of soil goes missing off the back of a construction vehicle. No big deal stuff falls off trucks all the time when not properly secured so what makes this gauge special.
This gauge contains a small amount of radioactive material which if tampered with could cause injury and burns .
if you ever run across something like this do not touch it and call 911 so properly trained people can make sure it is safe to picked up and returned to owner.
In this latest case it was safely found and returned
