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.
