ARKHANGELSK, December 7. /TASS/. Five persons who were injured in the crash of the Mi-8 helicopter in Russia’s Nenets Autonomous Area has been evacuated from the crash site to the administrative centre of the Nenets Area, Naryan-Mar, the regional department of the Russian Emergencies Ministry told TASS on Sunday.
Sergei Gmyzin, the chief physician of the Naryan-Mar hospital, where these men will be taken to, said the men are in a serious condition with craniocerebral traumas, sterna and limb fractures. “The hospital has everything needed to offer them emergency medical aid,” he said. “Local surgeons will be able to operate all the five of them, if need be.”
“The helicopter with the patients took off at 19:08 Moscow time. It will take it about 70 minutes to reach Naryan-Mar,” the press service said. Three ambulance cars are awaiting for the patients at the Naryan-Mar airport.
A Mi-8 helicopter with four passengers and three crew members fell down at about 13:20 Moscow time on Sunday two kilometers away from the takeoff site at the Trebs and Titov field developed by the Bashneft Polyus oil company in the Nenets Autonomous Area. The helicopter was charted to transport rotation workers of the Belomortrans company from Varandey to Naryan-Mar Mar. Two of those onboard - the flight engineer and one passenger - died instantly, and five were injured in the crash. The injured were taken to a medical unit at the Trebs and Titov field.
The Northwestern transport prosecutor’s office has launched a check into the accident. It said the crash might have been caused by either an engine malfunction or bad weather conditions.
