MOSCOW, July 21 (Itar-Tass) - During the accident with a helicopter in the Murmansk region died two UK citizens and their interpreter, the pilot got injured, Russia’s Investigative Committee reports.
During the helicopter’s emergency landing at the Rynda River in the Lovozersky district in the Murmansk region “died two tourists - citizens of the UK, both born in 1944, and their interpreter - a resident of the Murmansk region, born in 1960,” the source said.
“Two tourists paid for a flight by a private company to get to a fishing site in the Lovozersky district. They got off the helicopter. The helicopter began taking off, but the strong wind took it aside, and it made a hard landing, pushing the tourists,” the source said. “The pilot got injuries.”
EMERCOM’s Head of the Information Department Oleg Voronov said at 11:00 Moscow time, EMERCOM’s services received information about an emergency signal from a Eurocopter E120B helicopter, owned by the Alliance Avia private Company.
“We received contradictory information on the circumstances and possible victims, which was published by the media,” Voronov said.
Over a search operation, rescuers found the exact place of the accident.
