This Photo Compilation Details The Gruesome Aftermath of Chernobyl
It is said that real life can be scarier than fiction. In this instance, it is indeed. The Chernobyl disaster was the worst nuclear power plant accident in history in terms of cost and casualties. In 1986, an explosion and fire at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the town of Pripyat, Ukraine (then part of the Soviet Union) released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere, which spread over much of the western USSR and Europe.
This video is a collage of images taken from the fallout of this nuclear disaster. Bizarre animals left behind, tortured liquidators, deadly radiation, abandoned babies, and radioactive reindeer… this is truly the stuff of nightmares and it was created by Dark5, a Youtube Channel that “explores the darkest, strangest, weirdest, and most amazing, science, science fiction, history, technology, true crime and horror.” Sounds like our kind of channel.
