MOSCOW, August 9. /TASS/. Search operations in the Istra dam lake in the Moscow region, where a Robinson helicopter and a Cessna seaplane crashed after collision, are not yet over, a spokesman for the emergencies headquarters told TASS late on Sunday.
"The search operations are not over, since one more person who might have been on board the plane has not yet been found. Divers are examining the bottom," the spokesman said.
Earlier on Sunday, divers lifted the bodied of eight people and the hulls of the two aircraft. Four bodies were found inside the helicopter and the other four - near the Cessna.
Tatiana Morozova, a spokeswoman for the Moscow region transport investigation department, told TASS all the eight bodies had been identified. Two of them are minors.
The Cessna and the Robinson collided over the Istra dam lake in the evening on August 8 and fell down to a depth of 13 metres. The key theory is the error of one of the pilots.
