MSC-126 of Pripyat


     Pripyat Hospital (MSC-126) is a medical institution located on Peoples' Friendship Street. This five-story building includes a rather large medical complex: a maternity hospital, an ambulance station, a hospital, a children's ward, a morgue, etc. The first victims of the explosion of the fourth Chernobyl nuclear power plant were brought here, on the night of April 26, 1986. Among them were both Chernobyl personnel and firefighters who eliminated the fire. Irradiated had fever, nausea, vomiting, hallucinations. It is known that in the morning of April 26, station worker V.N. Shashenok died here, who was on duty in a room near the 4th reactor. Also, 28 firefighters were delivered to the wards of the medical unit, who were the first to arrive at the site of extinguishing nuclear fire. The injured, who were in critical condition, were taken to the 6th clinical hospital in Moscow. They were loaded onto a bus and taken to Kiev Boryspil airport for transportation to Moscow. In the 6th Moscow Clinic, a whole storey building was allocated for the irradiated, moving all the neighbors up and down. The nurse who took care of the sick will soon become ill and die.

 

Basement of the hospital complex
     The most terrible place in Pripyat, this is of course the basement MSC-126. When irradiated on the night of April 26, all of their things, including shoes, outerwear and underwear, were thrown into the basement, since they were pretty “fonil.” Why in the basement? Because then there was no place for the disposal of radioactive waste. Although more than 30 years have passed, the background radiation in the basement is still high. There still lie the remains of firefighter uniforms, boots, helmets, slippers worn by the sick, and things are still very radioactive. After the video began to arrive on the Internet that people were going down to the basement, for the sake of thrills, the entrance to the basement was covered with fine sand to protect visitors from dangerous artifacts and radiation.


Medical unit today
     Today, the 126 medical unit is a rather eerie place, as eerie as it was on April 26th. In cabinets on the floor, there are leftovers of medicines, bottles, tablets, test tubes, dishes, and the cabinet from the apparatus, mattresses and other medical equipment have been preserved in the X-ray room. Posters and Soviet symbols in the hospital have been preserved. Surprisingly, being there, you really feel the post apocalyptic awareness. Being in the hall, you can imagine how the irradiated people on a stretcher were taken to the wards. What clutter there was, like a ravaged beehive. After the evacuation, almost all medical equipment was taken to Slavutich.
