In his 23 years he boldly stepped to the fire, which covered the roof of the 4th reactor. He pulled out in places where others have not kept strong radiation and falling on the hot asphalt roof, which melted under their feet. Victor Kibenok eliminated fire for 35 minutes by cost of his life.
Being in a Moscow hospital, he told his friend and neighbour of the chamber: "Perhaps we do not go with you from here, but that night I experienced the best moments of my life...».
