NOVOSIBIRSK, March 10 (Itar-Tass) – The death toll from snowstorms hitting Russia’s Novosibirsk region has grown to five after a young man froze to death overnight to Sunday walking from the railway station in Chebula to the nearby settlement of Svetlaya Polyana, village administration sources told Tass on Sunday.
In another development overnight to Sunday, four people got suffocated as they were sheltering in a vehicle from a snowstorm in Kuibyshev, the Novosibirsk region’s branch of Russia’s EMERCOM reported earlier. Supposedly, the young men suffocated from carbon monoxide poisoning, as the car’s heating system was malfunctioning.
The man who froze to death was a 23-year-old resident of Novosibirsk who went to Svetlaya Polyana on Saturday afternoon to visit an ailing relative. The distance from the railway station to the village is nine kilometers. The young man strayed from the road way amid a snowstorm and made a cell phone call to say his parents about that. After that the contact with him was lost as the battery of the cell phone de-energized. Search with the use of tractors failed, as they got trapped in snow on the road. Villagers organized a search with flashlights, but the search yield no result either. The body was found only in the morning on the opposite side of the railway station.
