The selfless and brave trio!

The nuclear power plant at Chernobyl is located 65 miles away from the Ukrainian city of Kiev. The incident relates to 26th April, 1986... Unfortunately, two explosions occurred... Almost 50 tonnes of nuclear fuel that got vaporised settled to the ground after the explosions. Alas! This mishap dissipated deadly poison in the form of nuclear radiations that was almost 400 times more than bombing in Hiroshima.

There were many stories of bravery and great sacrifice, but none of them was more inspiring than that of the 3 divers at Chernobyl...

Ten days post the initial explosions, the experts identified a risk that was limitlessly greater than the previous explosions. ...

Valeri, Alexis, and Boris volunteered to dive using the scuba equipment and swim through the pool of water. They were to drain the water from sluice gates by finding and releasing the safety valves. ...

...

The action taken by these three men had indeed saved the lives of millions throughout Europe.

What is remarkable about Valeri, Alexei, and Boris's action is that they knew that there was no chance of survival.

However, still they volunteered their lives! Salutes to their heroism!
