The Mi-8 helicopter of the Vitez-aero airline crashed in the waters of Lake Kourisk shortly after taking off with a crew of three and 13 tourist passengers. Eight people, including two crew members, moved away from the helicopter, which sank 700 meters from the shore. One of the passengers said the crash happened because the helicopter was too low over the lake. The passenger said: “The helicopter is already submerged underwater within seconds before we unbuckle our seat belts. I managed to reach the surface of the water with my breath remaining through the back door which opened. But not everyone could do the same, ”he said. At the scene of the accident, officials from Russia’s Emergency Situations Ministry determined that the helicopter was 137 meters deep in the lake.
