TBILISI, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - The search for three Russian women and a local resident, the car of whom fell down in the Inguri River overnight to July 16, continues in the highland district Mesti in Georgia.
The emergency situation department of the Georgian Interior Ministry told reporters on Friday that “the search is complicated by a rugged terrain at the accident site and unfavourable weather conditions. Over the rains the water in the Inguri River became strongly dirty that complicates the search.
Along with the Mesti district rescue service, the rescuers and the divers from Tbilisi and Batumi are involved in the search.
The Russian woman and her two 23-year-old twin daughters (also Russian citizens), as well as their relative, who is a native of the village Khaishi, who were driving by a Subaru car, fell down from the road in the Inguri River from the height of several tens of meters overnight to July 16. According to the eyewitnesses, amid heavy rains the driver presumably lost control of the wheel on a hard highland road, rammed in the road barrier, after that the car capsized and fell down in the river.
The relatives of the missing people told reporters that the women went to Georgia in early July from Moscow, brought the body of the grandfather, who died in the Russian capital, and buried him in the homeland. They were driving to the relatives in the Mesti district.
