Lyudmilla Ignatenko, wife of one of the firemen who were the first responders to the initial meltdown of Chernobyl Plant #4. She spent as much time with her terminally ill husband as she possibly could while pregnant with their first child. Her husband died in just fourteen days of radiation poisoning, and her child lived only four hours after birth. Both the child and her husband had to be buried in multiple layers of thick plastic and zinc coffins. The bodies, while both living and dead, were compared to nuclear reactors, and continue to emit radiation to everything around them.
