MOSCOW, August 8. /TASS/. Plight or eight people was unclear on Saturday night after a collision of a plane and a helicopter in the area of the highly popular Istra water reservoir earlier on the same day, a source at the Moscow region’s law enforcement agencies told TASS.
"Updated information suggests flying aboard the Robinson helicopter were the pilot, who is its owner, and three passengers, while the seaplane had five persons inside," he said.
The seaplane and the helicopter fell into the water right after the collision.
"A fourteen-year-old girl was lifted to the service and given intensive medical assistance but she died later," the source said.
