Technicians did not have protective clothing, so they purchased dish-washing and gardening gloves from a general store. They then used a broken mop handle to lift the contaminated buckets into a truck.

Stephenson said the containers were stored next to a taxidermy exhibit, where children on tours sometimes stopped for presentations, sitting next to uranium for 30 minutes or more.
