MOSCOW, August 23 /TASS/. A Robinson R44 helicopter with four people onboard, including a child, made a crash landing on the Moskva River on Saturday.
A Moscow police source told TASS that the incident had occurred near the Beresta village in the Moscow region.
"A pilot and three of his relatives, including a child, were hurt. All of them refused to go to hospital," the source said.
