The death of the group Dyatlov (40 photos)

Dyatlov Pass Incident - one of the most mysterious and horrible incidents of the 20th century, what happened on the night of 1 February 2, 1959, in the Northern Urals, where died under mysterious circumstances a group of tourists, led by Igor Dyatlov. Hereinafter, photos, made by the participants hike:




At a time when setting the tent on the hillside Kholat Syakhl (translated from the Mansi - "Mountain of the Dead"), the tourists were prepared to sleep, something happened that made them in a panic to leave the shelter, let who what was downhill. Later, all were found dead, presumably from the cold. Several people had strong internal injuries as if they had fallen from a height, or they crashed the car on speed (thus, significant skin lesions were found).




The group consisted of skiers tourist club Ural Polytechnic Institute (UPI, Sverdlovsk): five students, three engineers graduates UPI instructor and camp sites, veteran Seeds Zolotarev. The team leader was a student of the V course UPI, Igor Dyatlov experienced hikers. The other band members were also not new to sports tourism, with experience of complex campaigns.




One of the participants of the tour Yury Yudin was eliminated from the group because of sciatica when entering the active part of the route, so that only one of the whole group alive. He was the first to recognize personal belongings of the victims and he also identified the bodies and Slobodina Dyatlov. In 1990 he was deputy head of Solikamsk on economy and forecasting, chairman of the City Tourist Club "Pole." Lyudmila Dubinin says goodbye to Yudin. On the left, Igor Dyatlov with bamboo ski poles (metal did not yet exist).




The first days of the campaign for the active part of the route passed without any serious incidents. Tourists advanced skiing along the river Lozvy and then along its tributary Auspii. February 1, 1959 the group stopped for the night on the mountainside Kholat Syakhl (Holat-Sjahl slope, translated from the Mansi - "Mountain of the Dead"), or the top of the "1079" (on later maps its height is given as 1096, 7 m), near nameless pass (later named Dyatlov Pass).
February 12 the group had to get to the final destination - the village of Vijay, sent a telegram to institute a sports club and on 15 February to return to Sverdlovsk. The first concern expressed Yuri Blinov, head of the group of tourists UPI, which drove up with a group of Dyatlov from Sverdlovsk to the village of Vijay and gone out to the west - to the ridge prayer service and Stone Mountain Isher (1331). Also, for the fate of relatives began to worry sister Sasha Kolevatova Rimma, parents and Dubinina Slobodina. The head of the sports club UPI Lev Semenovich Gordo and the Department of Physical Education UPI AM Vishnevsky another day or two is expected to return the group, as previously the case of delay on the route groups for various reasons. February 16-17, they contacted Vijay, trying to determine whether the group returned from a hike. The answer was negative.




The first days of the campaign for the active part of the route passed without any serious incidents. Tourists advanced skiing along the river Lozvy and then along its tributary Auspii. February 1, 1959 the group stopped for the night on the mountain tops Kholat Syakhl or "1079" (on later maps its height is given as 1096, 7 m), not far from the nameless pass (later named Dyatlov Pass).



February 12 the group had to get to the final destination - the village of Vijay, sent a telegram to institute a sports club and on 15 February to return to Sverdlovsk. The first concern expressed Yuri Blinov, head of the group of tourists UPI, which drove up with a group of Dyatlov from Sverdlovsk to the village of Vijay and gone out to the west - to the ridge prayer service and Stone Mountain Isher (1331). Also, for the fate of relatives began to worry sister Sasha Kolevatova Rimma, parents and Dubinina Slobodina.

February 16-17, they contacted Vijay, trying to determine whether the group returned from a hike. The answer was negative.



Search and rescue operations were launched on 22 February from a detachment sent. Around hundreds of kilometers there is no settlement, completely uninhabited areas. On February 26 the mountainside was found Kholat Syakhl tent, sprinkled with snow. The wall of the tent converts down the hill was cut. Later tent excavated and examined. Entrance to the tent was open, but the tent slope facing the slope, was torn in several places. In one of the holes protruded fur jacket. And, as shown expertise, cut inside the tent.



At the entrance lay inside the tent stove, buckets, a little further cameras. In the far corner of the tent - a bag with maps and documents, Dyatlov camera, diary Kolmogorov bank with money. To the right of the entrance were products. Right next to the entrance lay two pairs of shoes. The other six pairs of shoes lay at the wall opposite. Backpacks are spread across the bottom, they are quilted jackets and blankets. Some do not spread out blankets on top of blankets - warm clothes. Near the entrance is found ice ax, and on the slope of tents thrown flashlight. The tent was completely empty of people in it was not.



During the campaign team members were shot multiple cameras and kept diaries. No photos, no diaries, and other, have not helped to establish the exact cause of death of tourists.



Then the search engines began to open continuous series of terrible and cruel mysteries. The tracks around the tent pointed out that the whole group Dyatlova suddenly inexplicably left the tent, and presumably not in the output, and through the incisions. And the people ran out of the tent in the bitter cold without shoes and partially dressed. The group ran away about 20 meters in the direction opposite to the entrance of the tent. Then dyatlovtsy tight group, ranks almost, in socks in the snow and frost went downhill. Traces indicate that they were side by side, without losing sight of each other. And they did not escape, namely normal pace retreated down the slope.



After about 500 meters on the slope of the tracks were lost under a layer of snow. The next day, February 27, a mile from the tent and down the slope 280 m, near the cedar, the bodies were discovered by Yuri and Yuri Doroshenko Krivonischenko. This has been fixed: from Doroshenko stop burnt hair on the right temple, at Krivonischenko - burned his left leg and left foot burns. Next to the corpses found a small fire, which left in the snow.



Rescuers amazed that both bodies were stripped to their underwear. Doroshenko was lying on his stomach. Under it - broken down into the branch of the tree on which, apparently, he fell. Krivonischenko lying on his back. Around the bodies were scattered all sorts of small things. On hand were numerous injuries (bruises or abrasions), the internal organs are filled with blood from the tip of the nose was missing Krivonischenko.



In cedar, at a height of 5 meters, branches were broken off (some of them lying around the body). And the branches up to 5 cm at the height were first rasped with a knife, and then broken off with the force as if they hung all over. In the cortex there were traces of blood.



Nearby discovered slices with a knife to break the young fir and birch trees on the cuts. Cut off tops of firs and a knife were found. Under this assumption, which were used for heating, it was not. Firstly, they do not burn, and secondly, it was around many relatively dry material. Almost simultaneously with 300 meters from the cedar uphill in the direction of the tent body was found Igor Dyatlov.



He was a little unit tunes snow, half lying on his back, his head toward the tent, hugged hand birch trunk. On Dyatlov have ski pants, pants, sweater, cowboy shirt, fur sleeveless. On the right foot - a woolen sock, on the left - cotton. The clock on the hand showed 5:00 31 minute. The face was a build-up of ice, it means that before his death, he breathed in the snow.



The body revealed multiple bruises, scratches, osadneniya; in the palm of his left hand fixed superficial wound from the second to fifth fingers; internal organs are filled with blood. Approximately 330 meters from Dyatlov, up the slope beneath the dense snow 10 cm body was found Zina Kolmogorova.



She was warmly dressed, but without shoes. On the face there were signs of bleeding from the nose. On the palms of the hands and many bruises; scalp wound with a skin graft on his right hand; encircles the right side, passing to the back osadnenie skin; swelling of the meninges.



A few days later, on March 5 in the 180 meters from the discovery of the body Dyatlov and 150 meters from the location of the body under a layer of snow Kolmogorova 15-20 cm was found dead Rustem Slobodina. He was also quite warmly dressed, with his right foot was the boots, put on 4 pairs of socks (two boots was found in a tent). On the left hand were found Slobodina clock that features 8 hours and 45 minutes. On the face was an ice build-up, and there were signs of bleeding from the nose. A characteristic feature of the last three tourists were found color: according to the memoirs of rescuers - orange-red, the documents forensic - reddish-purple.



The search for the remaining tourists were held in several stages from February to May. And only after the snow began to melt, began to detect objects that are indicated in the right direction rescuers investigation. The exposed threads and pieces of clothing brought into the hollow creek about 70 meters from the cedar that was heavily covered with snow.



Big Tent group Dyatlov, made of several smaller ones. It housed inside a portable stove constructed Dyatlov.



The excavation allowed to find at a depth of more than 2, 5 m deck of 14 small trunks of fir and birch a length of 2 m. On the floor lay spruce branches and a few items of clothing. The position of objects on the floor were exposed four spots made as "seats" for four people. Body found under the four-meter layer of snow, in line with the already began to melt stream below and slightly to the side of the deck. Please find Lyudmila Dubinin - she froze, kneeling face into the side of a waterfall stream.



Mansi "runes." The traditional system of individual Mansi "labeling". Signs called "tamga" ("tamga" in the singular) Each Mansi has a personal tamga. It's like a generic card, a signature that is left in any memorable places - usually hunting areas or parking. For example, the hunter got elk, butchered it and had left to take it later. He does stёs and marks it with his tamga.



The other three were found slightly lower. Kolevatov Zolotarev and lay in the arms of "breast-to-back" at the edge of the creek, apparently warming to each other until the end. Thibault-Brignoles appear below in the water stream. The corpses, as well as a few meters away and found clothes Krivonischenko Doroshenko - pants, sweaters. All clothes had traces of clean cut, as already starred with corpses Krivonischenko and Doroshenko. Fatalities Thibault-Brignoles and Zolotarev found well dressed, worst dressed Dubinin - its faux fur jacket and hat were on Zolotarev, undressed Dubinina leg wrapped in woolen trousers Krivonischenko. About corpses found Krivonischenko knife, which were cut off by the fires young fir. On hand Thibault-Brignoles found two clocks - one showing 8 hours and 14 minutes, the second - 8 hours 39 minutes.



At the same time all the bodies had terrible injuries even in vivo. In Dubinina and Zolotarev were broken ribs 12 have Dubinina - and on the right and on the left hand, Zolotarev - just right. Later examination has determined that such injuries can only be obtained from a strong impact such attacks car moving at high speed or a fall from a great height. Stones in the hand of man can not be cause such injuries. In addition Dubinina and Zolotarev had no eyeballs - embossed or deleted. And Dubinina torn tongue and part of the upper lip. In Thibault Brignole depressed fracture of the temporal bone. Very strange, but examination revealed that the clothing (sweater, trousers) contain radioactive substances deposited with beta radiation.



According to experts, start climbing the mountain in bad weather a strong Dyatlov was a mistake, which perhaps was the cause of the tragedy.



One of the last photos. Tourists are clearing the place under a tent on the mountainside.



The last and most mysterious photo. Some believe that this picture was made by someone from the group of Dyatlov, the danger began to approach. For others, the frame was made when the film is removed from the camera for the developer.



This is a schematic picture of a hypothetical incident and found the bodies. Most of the bodies were found the group in the "head to the tent," and all are located on a straight line from the cut sidewall tents for over 1, 5 kilometers. Kolmogorov Slobodin and Woodpeckers did not die at the time of departure of the tent, but rather on the way back to the tent.



The whole picture of the tragedy points to the many mysteries and strange behavior dyatlovtsev, most of which are almost inexplicable.
 - Why do not they run away from the tent and retreated ranks, normal pace?
 - Why would they have a bonfire at the high cedar in the windswept site?
 - Why did they break the branches of cedar at a height of 5 meters, when there were a lot of small trees for a fire?
 - How could they get such terrible injuries on level ground?
 - Why have not survived, those who came to the creek beds and built there, because even in the cold it was possible to hold out until the morning?
 - Finally, and most importantly - what made the group at the same time and in such a hurry to leave the tent with little or no clothes, no shoes, and no equipment?

Search party discovered the tent:



Initially, the suspected murder of the local population of the northern Urals - Mansi. Suspicion fell Mansi Anyamov, Sanbindalov, Kurikov and their relatives. But none of them did not take the blame. Rather, they themselves were frightened. Mansi said that they saw at the place of death of tourists strange "balls of fire". They not only describe this phenomenon, but also to draw it. In the following figures from the case have disappeared or are still classified. "Fireballs" during searches watched the rescuers themselves, as well as other residents of the Northern Urals.



And March 31 was equally remarkable: all the members of the search team, who were in the camp in the valley Lozvy saw a UFO. Valentin Yakimenko, a participant of the events in his memoirs rather succinctly described what happened: "Early in the morning it was still dark. Orderly Viktor Meshcheryakov came out of the tent and saw a moving ball of light in the sky. I woke everyone. 20 minutes watching the movement of the ball (or disk), until he was out of the mountainside. We saw it in the southeast of the tent. He moved to the north. This phenomenon has excited everyone. We were confident that the death dyatlovtsev had something to do with it. "On what he saw, it was reported to the headquarters of the search operation, was in Ivdel. The appearance of UFOs in the investigation gave an unexpected direction. Someone remembered that the "fireballs" were observed in approximately the same area, February 17, 1959 in what the newspaper "Tagil Worker" was even published. And consequently, decisively rejecting the version of "malicious Mansi-killers", set to work in a new direction. The well-preserved footprints dyatlovtsev:



In the legends Mansi said that at the time of the Flood on the mountain Holat-Sjahyl gone before 9 hunters - "starved to death", "cooked in boiling water", "perished in an eerie glow." Hence the name of this mountain - Kholat Syakhl, in translation - the Mountain of the Dead. Gore is not a sacred place for Mansi, rather the opposite - the top they always get round. The discovery made dyatlovtsemi a warehouse with inventory that they left here, so as not to drag on extra weight uphill. One of the strange circumstances of the case lies in the fact that escape from the unknown danger, not the tourists headed to a warehouse where there was food and warm clothes, and in the other direction, as if the way to Labasa something was blocking.



There are many versions of what happened, which can be divided into 4 groups: natural (in the avalanche tent, tent collapsed under the weight of snow assailant attacked the tent Snow breathing difficulties travelers, forcing them to leave the tent and the like, the resulting impact of infrasound in the mountains
