Onlookers Pitch in to Help Administer Aid to Victims

Many that arrived to watch the rescue effort take place pitched in to help administer aid. Bodies of the first victims of this tragic X-ray fire turned yellow shortly after being brought out of the hospital, and later turned green. This was said to be symptomatic of death from inhalation of nitrogen peroxide.
