MURMANSK, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - The investigation says the reason for the deaths over the hard landing of a helicopter in the Murmansk region emerges from human actions.
The helicopter’s lurch, where over a takeoff the propellers wounded mortally three men, could have been caused by the pilot’s mistake, press service of the local branch of the Investigative Committee said.
The Investigative Committee “has opened a criminal case on offence of security rules for use of aviation transport,” the source said.
According to the preliminary information, the accident killed two tourists - UK citizens born in 1944, and their interpreter - a resident of the Murmansk region, born in 1960. The privately-owned helicopter belonged to the Northern Rivers Company in Murmansk. After the landing, the helicopter lurched and the propellers hit the passengers, who by that time were on the ground. The pilot got injured, too.
