MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) – List of people who boarded the misfortunate Yakovlev-42 jet, which crashed in flames 2 kilometers away from the runways of the airport in Russia’s Volgan city of Yaroslavl Wednesday afternoon, includes the names of eleven citizens of other countries, an official at the National Center for Crisis Situations Response told Itar-Tass.
“The early data at our disposal suggests there were eleven foreigners among the passengers on that flight,” Sergei Miroshnichenko, a deputy chief of the center said.
All in all, there were forty-five people aboard and only two of them survived. They had have taken to hospital.
Miroshnichenko said the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/, which the center reports to, is dispatching a plane with a team of rescuers and psychologists to Yaroslavl.
The crash carried away the lives of the Lokomotiv Ice Hockey Club team in full force. The team was going to the Belarussian capital Minsk where its match versus the Dinamo Minsk club was scheduled for Thursday.
In the meantime, EMERCOM’s information department officials said the bodies of 29 people have been found at the site of the crash.
“The number of bodies the rescues have found by now is 29,” a spokesman said.
He indicated that an Ilyushin-76 jet is due to take off from EMERCOM’s air hub at Ramenskoye near Moscow shortly to bring a team of about 30 emergency aid psychologists and rescuers.
EMERCOM’s Center for Emergency Psychological Aid has opened a hotline for those who need urgent counseling. Calls from inside Russia are expected at 8-495-626-37-07.
The Yakovlev-42 belonged to the Yak-Servis charter airline.
The early data released by Russia’s Federal Service for Civil Aviation /Rosaviatsiya/ says that the jet failed to ascend to a secure altitude after getting airborne and it staked the antenna of a radio beacon located outside the runway.
