Helicopter Chops Passengers on Fishing Expedition
On July 21, 2013, a Eurocopter crashed in Murmansk in the Kola Peninsula.
Two British tourists who were traveling for a salmon fishing trip on the River Rynda and a Russian translator had just exited the helicopter. It was lifting off when it crash landed, striking them by the rotors when the helicopter attempted to lift off and tilted on its side, 150 kilometers from Murmansk to the tourist camp on the river Rynda.
Four people were injured but only the pilot has survived.
The Britons, Diamond Rupert and Mark Robinson were born in 1944, and the translator Alexander Tushnikov was born in 1960.
Emergency services flew in from the Emergencies Ministry.
