MURMANSK, July 23 (Itar-Tass) - The bodies of two British nationals, who died in a hard landing of the helicopter Eurocopter-120 on the bank of the Rynda river in the Lovozero district of the Murmansk region, will be brought back to the homeland no later than on Thursday, acting representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry in Murmansk Olga Gavrilova told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
On Monday, the casualties of the air crash were brought to the regional mortuary. “The investigating actions are underway. The insurance company is processing all required documents for bringing the bodies of the British nationals back to the homeland,” Gavrilova said, noting that “the dead men can be repatriated already on Tuesday or on Thursday in the least.”
Two British tourists born in 1944 Mark Robertson and Rupert Beaumont and their guide-interpreter Alexander Dushenkov, who is a resident of the Murmansk region born in 1960, died in the air crash on Sunday, July 21. The tourists paid for the flight by a private airline to get to the place of fishing in the Lovozero district. Already after the landing on the ground the helicopter crashed on one side, hitting the passengers that got out from the helicopter. The pilot of the helicopter has also got some injuries.
The criminal case was opened over the violation of the safety rules of air traffic and steering of aircraft.
