First of all deee, very interesting story, thank you for bringing it to our attention
I think others have covered all the possibilities pretty well. While searching for information on military testing in the Urals, I came across
information that there was a massive
nuclear test in 1954
(purposely) exposing thousands of soldiers and civilians to radiaiton. That could explain the radiation, and a similiar
test may have led to the hikers fleeing into the night. Although you would imagine with a massive air search, somebody would have noticed the damage
from a recent nuclear test. So comment and question-
1. The injuries sound consistent with some kind of shockwave. Blindness and internal injuries for sure from an explosion. The head injuries could
be from falling down the side of the mountain and striking a rock while running at night or from a shockwave, or from tripping after beign partially
blinded. The girl missing her tongue could have accidentally bitten it off from a sudden shock.
2. Are there any other types of military testing, aside from detonating atomci bombs, that could lead to radiaiton exposure? If not, I imagine the
radiation is leftover from previous tests and ths was a conventional explosion.
