Looking for missing relatives

On April 8, 2022, at a train station in Kramatorsk, eastern Ukraine, more than 50 civilians were killed and hundreds injured. In every major news source you can read that. And here is from one of the medics who worked at the scene:

A father comes over to us and says that he can’t find his family, asks for permission to look around. Look around how? Open each body bag? He takes out his phone and dials a number. The ring comes from one of the black bags. This is hell!
