  • Lyudmila was born in 1938. She was a third year student in UPI university in Engineering and Economics Major.

  • She was active in tourist club, liked to sing and take pictures. Many of the pictures of the last trip were done by her.

  • Ludmila Dubinina was very experience, courageous and well respected leader. Just a year earlier she was chosen as a leader of the tourist group that went on category 2 (intermediate difficulty) trip in the Northern Urals.

  • During an expedition to the Eastern Sayan Mountains in 1957 she received an accidental gunshot from another tourist who was cleaning a rifle. She endured a painful injury courageously. During long and very painful transportation she did not complain and even felt sorry for causing too many troubles to the group.

  • Body of Ludmila Dubinina was found on May 4th, 1959 about 75 meters away from the campfire at the bottom of the ravine under a layer of snow 4- 4.5 meters thick. She is part of the "last four" or "four in the creek" group that probably died the last. Her body showed evidence that it was moved after her death. While collection of blood under her skin showed that she was lying on her back immediately after he death, she was later moved. Search party found her corpse face down in the water of the small creek formed by melted water.

  • Cause of death- extensive hemorrhage in the right ventricle of the heart, multiple bilateral fracture of the ribs, profuse internal bleeding in the chest cavity. One of the strangest details of her autopsy is the missing tongue and lack of description of these injuries. We don't know if the entire tongue was missing with the tongue diaphragm or was it just the intrinsic muscle that were missing. Additionally we don't know whether the tongue was ripped out, cut out or simply scavenged by animals. It is one of the greatest mysteries of the Dyatlov Pass Incident.

  • She was buried on the Michaylovsky (Saint Michael) Cemetery.
