Inside Chernobyl's Hospital Basement (Scariest Room In Chernobyl)

Inside Chernobyl's Hospital Basement (Scariest Room In Chernobyl)
we are back in prypiat now and what we are about to do is probably one of the most dangerous and things I am ever done crazy right guys we've left the abandoned trains now what we've done is we've stopped at the red forest now as you can see there's a mound over there that mound is where the trees were actually buried so basically they dig a trench and at the bottom of the trench they'd put clay so the radiation wouldn't sink any deeper it would just get to the clay and that's as far as it would go and on top they would put fresh soil on top of the trench to cover the trees now that is what this mound is here now if we're going to test out how radioactive it actually is so there we go guys were on the mound as you see made your active sign and we are reading another bed 1.15 which is very low considering below us is a radioactive trees not great but not terrible if you guys have watched the HBO series of

Chernobyl

you're gonna know what this bridge is now this bridge has been nicknamed the bridge of death now in the series you saw people are prepare come to the bridge and what the reactor burning now if I carry on walking down there right in the distance behind the trees you can see reactor number four and this is where like family members of people that work there people that lived in Pripyat would have stood and watched as the reactor just burn right we are back in Pripyat now and what we are about to do is probably one of the most...

dangerous and things I have ever done since exploring we are going into the

basement

of trip yet

hospital

now this is where all the firefighters who are trying to put out the fire in

Chernobyl

reactor four this is where all the firemen's clothes and gear was thrown underneath so obviously they come to the

hospital

very radioactive radioactive poisoning the doctors took off all of their gear and just threw it in the

basement

now this is highly radioactive or do not encourage anybody to go into this

basement

we're doing it so you guys don't have to what we gotta do now is gear up get our suits on cover our shoes up I'm not gonna lie I'm a little bit nervous but at the same time I've really wanted to see this for a very long time right gonna gear up and we will head to the

hospital

I don't know where you can hear me guys I'm suited and booted now all right well right down the bottom or in there boy just feels absolutely surreal to be down there so explore it this is our first sighting of the fireman's shoes and as you can tell the guy DiPaola has gone up to 28 40 43 if I go closer a piece that knowing what almost at 100 and all this was firefighters clothes and safety equipment as you can see they got the safety clothes over their boots down there down I'm going to put it closer to it as you can see it jumps I'll take it away so 73 if I put it closer it jumps right up to 70 79 80 690 we're gonna read a hundred there yeah 99 103...

point 906 even now it's reading and we're not even cut we're not even putting the body kind of close is reading at 52 we're not you can put it down towards the equipment 30 sixty-one I was going have to be crazy almost a thousand mm that's incredible that is very they thing just say that's how much you'd get in your honor who is here for an hour that's how much radiation will be good for your body and how much you would pick up 702 and almost 2,000 we read on that wife is trousers not as radioactive as the shoes obviously because the shoes connect to the ground and you pick up the radiation and the particles of the shoes but still very radioactive not as check out this so guys the slippers that you can see here were from the nurses and the doctors who actually worked it now obviously they got in contact with the firefighters so even their clothes and their shoes would have to have been thrown down there because they were contaminated now in this

room

in front of us was the mattresses that the firefighters would have slept on in the

hospital

and laid on now obviously it's not going to be as contaminated as the shoes but because their bodies are contaminated these had to be thrown away as well all right boys let's carry on and walk down and see what else we can see in the

basement

again looks like another workshop as you can see those desks chairs all sorts and they're even medication but I look a bit right at the back in that cabin...
inside chernobyl s hospital basement scariest room in chernobyl
er well there's an elevator as well as an elevator to get you down into the

basement

obviously takes you from ground floor ground and second floor down into the

basement

some sort of fire down there again this

room

is absolutely littered with like slippers shoes everything that the nurses doctors maybe firefighters I don't think any firefighter logins in their words have been thrown away and as you can see right in front of us on that shelf in perfect condition is a pair of shoes and as you can imagine they would have been left there from 1986 and they're still in that perfect condition never been touched now the further we walk away the less contaminated this

basement

is obviously why at the beginning there was the firefighters clothes shoes which is the most contaminated objects now on it old beer bottle but I turn my torch off guys this is how dark it is let's turn the light back on now as I walk through there you could just imagine the panic and the chaos that would have gone on around us the nurses would have been down here throwing all the firefighters clays away as fast as they could now as you can see the paint appealing off from a bottle of these boilers Machinery it gives it that extra a refill as we walk through it again explores before we leave this

basement

firefighters trousers firefighters shoes safety jacket nurses and doctors slippers just all a left down there it's getting extremely hot down here as well now this

room

of all the

room

s in...
the

basement

has got the most equipment from the firefighters in a so these tanks that you can see on the floor of the

basement

are actually oxygen tanks they were used for patients that were struggling to breathe and help them to breathe a little bit better now as well these have been throwing down there I think they're as contaminated does the rest of the stuff down there but they didn't want to take any chances and just threw them down it into the

basement

and that's where they've been ever since again at more oxygen tanks traits now this is a trolley that on guessing would have wore like tea coffee maybe medication as well drinks to the patients but most likely medication that the nurses would have pushed through to the patients it is absolutely filled the floor is completely covered in this

room

we've heard a patient's clothes nurses clothes maybe some firefighters clothes in there not sure why explorers like I said it's not a good idea to be down there too long so that is the

basement

explored I think of being down here long enough now I don't want a tenth fate I think it's time to leave Oh fresh air I have never wanted to see that outside so bad and there we have a explorers the

basement

of the

hospital

has now been explored I've shown you or will never go back down there ever again now it's trying to get off these suits Oh what an experience guys we are now back outside feels so much better taking all that safety equipment...
off it got so hot down there also having the mask on God you scared me god that dogs are scared me you just scared the hell out of me dog oh where are you before I was rudely interrupted also my glasses started to steam up as well as so I was struggling the see down there and at one point I didn't see where the rest of them had gone so I thought I took a wrong turn or something but yeah now we've explored that guy's we are now heading it to the morgue that's another place I haven't seen yet so it's pretty interesting once they check out this bike a kiddies bike outside the

hospital
