We (team 11) were at the Savanorių Street telephone station. Bonfires were burning and people were singing. After midnight we saw tanks and heard shoot¬ing. At first our arms and legs began to tremble, but then we calmed down. We asked at the station if we should go to the television. But they told us to stay where we were. People began to come over to us. The first person had a cut in his head. Everyone was at least 60 years old. They refused to go to the hospital because they didn't live in Vilnius and they wanted to return home as soon as possible. They told us how they had been sitting in a bus by the television building and soldiers had dragged them out and beat them. Their bus was blocked by tanks, so they couldn't leave.

Another man came who had been poisoned by tear gas. Later a sixteen year-old came who had an injured leg. The wounds were pretty characteristic: it was as if they had all been stabbed by a spear from below. The skin and the underskin had been broken, but nothing further. Therefore, something had exploded. A man also came in with broken ribs - he had been beaten by a gun butt.
