On February 23 1987 in 2:52 UT the neutrino telescope LSD under Mont Blanc detected neutrino signal, which could not be explained within the framework of the standard collapse model. We show that the LSD signal could be a consequence of the detection of gamma-quanta emitted from neutron-capture reactions on by iron nuclei contained in the composition of the experimental setup. Neutrons are produced in neutrino-nuclei reactions in the surrounding granite rock and steel structures of the detector.
