The bodies of 47 victims as a result of the crash of an airplane A-320 near Sochi have been identified
The bodies of 47 victims as a result of the crash of an airplane A-320 near Sochi have been identified, the information department of the Emergencies Ministry told Itar-Tass on Wednesday. “Four victims of this tragedy could not be identified so far,” the information department said, adding that “during the search operation rescuers managed to find only 51 bodies.” The crashed airplane A-320 was carrying 105 passengers and eight crewmembers. “Large parts of the airplane could not be recovered from the water,” a source in the operational headquarters of the search operation deployed in Sochi told Itar-Tass. However, the search operation does not stop. Last weekend the special equipment was supplied from France that allows examining the sea bottom and setting the accurate coordinates of the flight recorders. “This equipment will be installed on the sea tugboat “Navigator” on Wednesday,” the source said. As many as 571 people, 27 vessels and one helicopter are involved in the search operation, he pointed out. The airbus A-320 belonging to the Armenian airline Armavia has crashed in the Black Sea during another attempt at landing in the Sochi airport overnight to May 3. The catastrophe claimed the lives of 113 people. According to the latest reports, 51 bodies were recovered from the water. A Russian transport emergency airplane Il-76 brought the bodies of 36 crash victims to Yerevan.
