PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — Search and rescue operations after an An-28 airplane crash near the settlement of Palana on Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula are over, a spokesman for the Kamchatka Territory administration of the Russian emergencies ministry told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Rescuers have found cockpit voice and flight data recorders. Fragments of the crashed jet will be taken for expert study to Palana by a Mi-8 helicopter on September 15.
The An-28 plane owned by Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky Airline crashed on September 12 while performing a flight from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to Palana. It hit the Pyatibratka Mount, some 10 kilometers away from its destination. There were two pilots and 12 passengers, including two children, onboard the plane. Then persons, including both pilots and one child, were killed in the crash. At the moment of the crash, all the four survivors were in the tail-end and were thrown off the plane as it touched the ground. Currently all the survivors are in grave or extremely grave condition. Medics say the life of the teenage boy is in danger. The boy received an open head injury and currently is in a state of coma.
Three of the survivors, a woman, a man and the 13-year-old boy were taken for treatment to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky late on Thursday. They were placed in an intensive care ward of the Kamchatka territorial clinic. The fourth survivor will continue treatment in Palana.
A criminal case was opened over the crash. An investigation is underway.
