Description Yuki Ito (17) was exposed in her home. The rest of her family was unharmed, but Yuki died when she was blown into the courtyard. A shard from a mirror broken by the blast had stabbed her chest like a knife. The same day, the family gathered firewood and some oil and cremated her body in the back yard. This shroud, which Yuki embroidered herself, still has Yuki's blood on it.
