Atomic bomb scream!!
A huge fireball was suddenly shimmering in the skies over Hiroshima. Six or seven seconds later, with a whoosh came "Wa-a-ah!" a collective scream from all the people of Hiroshima. The shrieks of the people! The groans of death agonies!! Voices from hell!! The atomic bomb scream!!
