Moments Right Before the Daegu Subway Arson Disaster

Posted February. 19, 2003 22:48,   


These are the tensed moment in the 1080 train which was heading to Daegok from Anshim on the 18th when the arson attack took place. As the poisonous gases leaked into the train some passengers were covering their mouths and noses with their hand, but others were just sitting, not knowing what is happening because the arson was not notified in time. Ryu Hojeong (29), a teacher in a private institution, offered these photos. He took these two photos in the train but fainted from suffocation and moved to a hospital.
