|On the Aioi Bridge there was the body of a little child|
When I arrived at the Aioi Bridge, corpses in many numbers were lying all over the road on the bridge. All bodies were blistered and were lying on their backs in the shape of bouncing up. I could say that the bridge was full of people who died.
Among them there was the body of a little child. I imagined that he must have been walking with his hand held by his mother and A-bomb came, "Boom!" just like that. I felt indescribably angry.
Because not only the parapets of the Aioi Bridge had fallen into river but also its girders were raised into air, it was difficult for me to pass on foot. I crossed the bridge with great fear.
