MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. Rescuers found in the Syamozero Lake in Karelia body of the child, who was remained missing, the regional authorities told TASS on Sunday.
"Today, 100 meters from the shore the rescuers found the body of a child, supposedly who had been member of the tourist party from Park Hotel," the source said.
The 13 year-old boy was the only missing child. The search continued for a week. Earlier, a life vest was found at the lake.
All in all, on June 18, the party had 47 adolescents and four accompanying adults who ignored the worsening weather conditions and the rising waves.
A storm began when the party was already deep into the lake’s water area and the raft with children and two adults was washed ashore on one of the islands while the two boats were pulled out to the open water where the instructors and the children proved unable to keep control of the boats and found themselves overboard as a result.
The misfortunate travelers tried to reach the shore by swimming but tall waves and low water temperature made this task excruciating. Fourteen children drowned.
A total of thirteen bodies have been found and the search for one more body continued. The rest of the party managed to get to the shore and were rescued later.
The criminal case opened by Russia’s Investigations Committee envisions prison terms of up to ten years for the guilty.
