George (Yuri) Krivonischenko AutopsyHis body was the second discovered underneath the cedar at the Dyatlov Pass. He was dressed in a shirt, long sleeved shirt, swimming pants, pants and torn sock on his left leg. He had no footwear.


- bruises on the forehead 0.3*1.8cm and a bruise around left temporal bone (1)

- diffuse bleeding in the right temporal and occipital region due to damage to temporalis muscle (2)

- tip of the nose is missing (4)

- frostbitten ears (5)

- bruises on the right side of the chest 7*2cm and 2*1.2cm (13)

- bruises on both hands (6-11)

- detachment of the epidermis on the back of his left hand at width of 2cm (14)

- portion of the epidermis from the right hand is found in the mouth of the deceased

- bruises on the thighs (16-19) with minor scratches

- bruise on his left buttock 10*3cm (15)

- abrasions on the outer side of the left arm size 6*2cm and 4*5 cm (7-8)

- bruises on the left leg 2*1, 2*1.5 and 3*1.3 cm (19-21)

- burn on the left leg 10*4 cm (22)


The amount of urine in the bladder was 500 grams. Cause of death: hypothermia. He froze to death. The presence of skin between his teeth that was torn from his hands might suggest that Krivonischenko tried to stay on the cedar as long as he could. Some theories speculate it was a result of his dedication to cut as many tree branches as he could. Others claim something on the ground kept him on a tree.


The first two bodies of (Doroshenko and Krivonischenko) that were found from the Dyatlov Pass Incident showed an expected pattern of death. They froze to death. Their clothes were removed by their friends. It might sound bad, but this is the reality of Siberia. If you can't keep yourself warm, you will die quickly. One of the most common myths that surround these deaths is a theory of so- called "paradoxical undressing". This theory ignores the fact that the bodies were undressed after they died and it was done by other members with a help of a knife in some cases. Different articles of clothing were simply cut from the dead bodies or taken off and used by other members of a group. These tourists clearly showed logical will to live. There was no state of panic and there was no illogical actions. Bodies were carefully and respectfully laid side by side and their possessions were divided among the survivors.
