The school was held under siege until September 3 when the terrorists detonated bombs in the packed gymnasium precipitating a firefight between them and Russian security forces. More than 300 civilians were killed, half of them children. After the first explosion, Albina Viktorovna helped twenty children escape through a window in the gymnasium. When fire began, she ran for the exit then she turned in response to a call for help. She was not seen alive again.
