Eight people on board a helicopter that made an emergency landing in Yakutia on December 24 have been rescued
Eight people on board a helicopter that made an emergency landing in Yakutia on December 24 have been rescued. A search helicopter spotted the missing aircraft from the air on Tuesday. The three crewmen and five passengers have been evacuated from the site of the emergency landing and brought to the settlement of Batagai. All the people who were on board have not been hurt, the press service of the Far Eastern regional Center for emergency situations said on Tuesday. The Mi-8 helicopter took off from the settlement of Tumata on December 24 and headed for Batagai, carrying eight people on board and three tons of cargo. Radio contact with the helicopter was lost 40 minutes after takeoff. The helicopter made an emergency landing in a remote highland area more than 250 kilometers off the destination. On December 25 rescuers from the Ministry for Emergency Situations spotted the missing helicopter from the air, but failed to reach the site of the emergency landing. On Monday, the rescuers made their way to the helicopter landing site in cross country vehicles, but had to abandon the search approximately a kilometer off the landing site because of a heavy blizzard and a zero visibly range in the search area. On Tuesday, another search helicopter spotted the missing one from the air, which helped locate the people in emergency. All the people evacuated from the site of the emergency landing are in normal condition.
