Room Chernobyl

Not only nuclear power plant workers, submariners and those living near hazardous industries suffered from dangerous radiation. The victims of radiation could be simple Soviet family who received lethal doses without leaving home. This happened to the residents of one of the houses in the Ukrainian Kramatorsk due to the fact that during its construction an ampoule with cesium-137 was walled up in one of the walls. The dangerous isotope got there from the Karansky career of the Donetsk region. At the enterprise, which extracted gravel and crushed stone, level gauges were used, for which cesium was used. One of the ampoules with a dangerous substance was gone, the search came to nothing lead. Crushed stone was mined for the construction of objects of the Olympics-80, as soon as Leonid Brezhnev became aware of the loss, the supplies from the quarry to Moscow were canceled.
In 1980, in Kramatorsk, the house number 7 was handed over on Guardsmen Kantemirovtsev Street. The lost 8-by-4-mm ampoule was encased in one of the walls of the children's room. A year later, an 18-year-old girl died from dangerous radiation in a radioactive apartment.In 1982, her brother passed away. Then the radiation killed their mother.
Another family moved into a deserted apartment, who soon had a teenage son. As it turned out, the same diagnosis was made to all the dead - leukemia. Permanent death of doctors explained the poor heredity of the dead.
Such a coincidence seemed strange to the father of the second family and he began to seek a detailed investigation of the incident. In 1989, it came to radiological examination.
As the radiologist, the former head doctor of the SES Nikolay Savchenko, recalls, they were asked to measure the radiation background of one of the flats of the firing house. Radiologists turned on the instruments in the yard and both dosimeters went off scale. At the entrance of the house, the instruments showed much less, and on the apartment's threshold they went crazy again and showed critical values. Specialists needed a more powerful device, which was found in the headquarters of civil defense.
The study showed a high radiation background in the nursery, in the adjacent apartment behind the wall and in the apartment on the floor above. Residents were resettled, they began to look for a source of radiation. To do this, it was necessary to cut a part of the wall and take it to the Kiev Institute of Nuclear Research.There is a vial of cesium removed. According to the factory number, the owner of the dangerous isotope was installed. As soon as the radioactive substance disappeared from the wall, the level of radiation in the house became equal to the background. In the nine years that the ampoule held in the wall, 17 people received doses above the natural background, Savchenko said.
Similar cases were observed in Omsk. In 1989, 12 cases of acute leukemia in children were recorded there, in 1990 - 25, in 1991 - 26. The cause of the disease, doctors called the increased radiation background of the residential premises of the city. For the construction of houses used radioactive rubble, mined in the mine Makinka (Kazakhstan).
After similar incidents, episodes of radiophobia rolled through the cities, and some enterprising residents made capitals by conducting “independent radiological examinations”.
