An early intervention after the disaster
These images are taken from a film made during an early intervention intended to remove fragments of radioactive graphite from the roof of the twin reactor. They say more than words, the heroism of fire crews who were the first to intervene, the emergency, the derisory means given the magnitude of the disaster, the poignant absence of a significant radiation protection. This involves climbing onto the roof of the neighboring reactor to clean it of highly radioactive debris that has fallen after the explosion.
