NOVOSIBIRSK, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - Siberian transport policemen have provided first aid to passengers of the Novosibirsk-Adler train, which crashed in Krasnodar Territory on July 7, traffic police for the Siberian Federal District told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Policemen stayed in the carriage when they heard the sound of train braking. As soon as the train stopped Senior Lieutenant Nugurbek Uralbayev, Sergeant Sergei Chumachenko and Sergeant Major Yevgeny Zlydnev rushed to evacuating injured passengers. “Carriages’ doors turned out to be blocked that is why one should have to break windows and drag people out of carriages,” Uralbayev said by telephone.
“First of all we evacuated women and children,” he added. Till rescuers arrived policemen provided first medical aid to injured people. “We helped evacuate passengers from other carriages,” Uralbayev said.
After passengers were driven to the nearest station Siberian policemen remained on the spot to ensure law and order. They found four mobile phones and one tablet PC. The gadgets will be given to their owners shortly.
On July 9 Siberian policemen will return home by the Adler-Novosibirsk train. They will be awarded with honorary certificates and valuable presents, sources at traffic police for the Siberian Federal District reported.
The train crashed at 5:10 p.m. on the section between Kislyakovskaya and Krylovskaya. A total of 108 people were injured and 13 people were hospitalized. About 300 metres of the railway bed and two supports of power lines were damaged. Criminal proceedings have been instituted.
