KALININGRAD, July 2 (Itar-Tass) - A resident of Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region has rescued five people from a burning car, acting spokesman for the regional department of the Russian Interior Ministry, Vyacheslav Kochubei, told Tass on Tuesday.
“A road accident involving a Nissan Primera car near the settlement of Porechye, Pravdino district, could have ended with casualties if local resident Yevgeny Baginsky had not come to the rescue,” Kochubei said.
At one of the numerous turns of a curvy road, the 40-year-old driver of the Nissan heading for Kaliningrad early in the morning lost control of the car. The car drove into the ditch, hit a tree and caught fire. The people were stuck in the car and could not leave the vehicle without help.
Yevgeny Baginsky heard the sound of a vehicle hitting the tree. He rushed to the scene and managed to retrieve the injured occupants from the wreckage of the burning car. The car burned down completely. The man who saved five lives has received burns and scratches of the hands.
Police are looking into the road accident. According to an early version, the driver exceeded the speed limit. The courageous man will be remunerated for his brave deed, Kochubei marked.
