Sixth Floor

At the top of this ladder, it became clear. We had to swing out, and then stand on the corner of the top of the main water tank before continuing our journey up via a new vertical ladder.

The interior of the main water tank could just be seen. Full of tie-rods and rusted metal, you didn’t want to fall into it. In the days of the working hospital, it would’ve been less dangerous, filled with cold water. But now, it was not so friendly.
