This is a crazy story of what happened when some people that simply didn't have a clue, handled a part of a caesium 137 tele-therapy unit, and poked inside it.

In 1985 1km away from the administrative centre of Goiania city sat Instituto Giano de Radioterapia a private radiotherapy centre that had been closed down. the company moved to a new premises, taking a cobalt-60 tele-therapy unit with them however the move left behind a caesium 137 tele-therapy unit.
