Paramedic Y. Nenashev tells his story
Written by Михаил Поляков

In the newspaper ‘Trud’
The casualties were immediately taken to city hospitals. Beds had been prepared for them at Hospital #13. Yuri Nenashev, one of the medical workers who gave them first aid, had this to say:
“The casualties came to with some difficulty, complaining of headache. The action of the gas caused many to have allergic reactions. This gives me reason to think that most likely the gas included seduxen (diazepam — ed). Most people complained of sore throats and pain in the abdomen. After hospitalization, several died.
The reason for this is likely not only from the action of the gas, but also a range of unfortunate circumstances. Many of the evacuees, while they were being held, developed this so-called ‘Parkentel syndrome*’, that is when their circulation has adapted to their stationary condition, and when they were taken out of it they go into shock**. Two men after receiving antibiotic injections started having epileptic seizures, and one even had a stroke. Some patients also lost their sight, hopefully not forever. The survivors may require the psychiatric assistance, even after they are released them from the hospital. The shock was so strong that many of them still do not believe they are free. One woman was afraid to close her eyes: she said that if she did she would once again find herself the auditorium. The adults are very worried about their children, who have been distributed among children’s hospitals under special supervision, and we have to constantly reassure the women who get hysterical.
And yet most of the former hostages have survived: once released they feel more or less tolerable.
* A search of medical literature did not find any condition, disease, or syndrome of this or a similar name.
** Also not described in medical literature. Long-term immobility, such as during an overseas flight, can lead to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), also known as ‘Economy Class Syndrome’ and ‘Traveler’s Syndrome’. Autopsies on the slain hostages did not reveal DVT.
