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.
At the time of reporting, the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations was building up its grouping of rescue specialists at the site of the crash.
A total of 40 rescue workers and fifteen specialized vehicles were engaged in the recovery operation. Also, the ministry dispatched to the area the divers specializing in particularly dangerous rescue operations, the ministry’s press service said.
