VLADIVOSTOK, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Four people, who survived the Mi-8 helicopter crash in Yakutia, have been evacuated by two air flights, the Far East rescue service department reported on Thursday.
Late at night rescuers jointly with doctors reached injured people, raised three crewmembers of the Mi-8 helicopter aboard a helicopter and delivered them to the Ust-Kuiga hospital.
Doctors provided aid to a broken-backed 17-year-old young man on the spot. At night the Emergency Situations Ministry plane returned to the area of the crash. The young man was raised aboard the plane and carried to the hospital in Ust-Kuiga.
The An-74 plane delivered injured people to Yakutsk where they had been hospitalized.
The Mi-8 helicopter made the flight on the route between the Deputatsky small town and the village of Kazachye. On July 2 the Mi-8 helicopter left the small town of Deputatsky for the village of Kazachye. Earlier, Yakutia’s deputy premier Anatoly Skrybykin said, “The helicopter flew over the heights and turned into a powerful downburst cell. The helicopter touched upon a fell and dapped. The helicopter caught fire.” Law enforcers told Itar-Tass that the helicopter lost control due to air bursts and hooked a fell.
A total of 440 people and 72 units of equipment are involved in the rescue operation.
