Aiding the Victims

Witnesses to the clinic catastrophe observe as volunteers attempt to resuscitate one of the policeman who immediately fell ill as a result of the extremely poisonous fumes that consumed the entire hospital. Volunteers and any available medical personnel scrambled to administer oxygen to any survivors.
