Piotr Sadowski, 22 years old 

An employee of Port of Gdańsk. On August 31, 1982 in the center of Gdańsk, when running away from militia breaking up demonstrators, he tripped, fell, and hit his head. Unconscious, he was poisoned by the tear gas. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. The investigation was dismissed because it was "not established that a crime had taken place".
