Metal objects caused purulent inflammation in a number of victims.

Doctors have shown the filling of the bomb that exploded in the Kerch Polytechnic College. Vladislav Roslyakov, who is responsible for shooting in the educational institution, put nails and other small metal objects into the improvised explosive device. Head of the Ministry of Health Veronika Skvortsova told Channel One.

“Bolts, washers, curved nails... The metal components were large enough, some as big as a thumb. It is clear that they were dirty, infected. This makes the tissue damage dangerous, as these fragments immediately cause inflammation. A number of patients have phlegmons (acute purulent inflammation) of the intestines, the ruptures accompanied by abscesses,” Skvortsova said.

According to the minister, 46 persons were hospitalized, including 26 minors; 16 persons are in serious condition. Six children are currently receiving treatment at the Research Institute of Emergency Pediatric Surgery and Traumatology in Moscow. Three are in stable serious condition, and other three are in serious condition with signs of improvement. Two women in serious condition have undergone surgery in the Vishnevsky Center, Moscow, six people with severe injuries are receiving treatment in Simferopol, and two in Krasnodar.
