ST. PETERSBURG, February 8 (Itar-Tass) – Fifty-three amateur fishermen have been saved in the Gulf of Finland in the Vyborg district of the Leningrad region. The rescue operation ended at 16:50 Moscow time, a source at the Russian Emergencies Ministry department for the Leningrad region told Itar-Tass on Friday.
A report that four fishermen were in distress in the Gulf of Finland came at 11:55 on Friday. The ice had split 300 meters off the coast near the Zelyonaya Roscha village. The crack was three meters long and five meters wide.
A Khivus air-cushion boat left for the fishermen’s rescue. As it turned out, more than four fishermen had difficulty in getting back to the shore. A total of 15 people and 7 vehicles took part in the rescue operation.
