In the Leningrad Region, aviation rescuers of the Leningrad Air Force and Air Defense Association conducted a training session to rescue soldiers in distress from the water.
According to the plan of the training, an aircraft with passengers on board suffered a disaster near the coastline in the water area of the Gulf of Finland. A Mi-8 search and rescue helicopter with a team of aviation rescuers and special equipment flew into the disaster area.
After searching for people, the helicopter commander made a parachute landing of the search and rescue group on the water using a winch. The victims were taken in turn aboard a helicopter hovering in the air, where they were given medical assistance.
In total, 10 flights to the water area of the Gulf of Finland were made to carry out search and rescue operations and evacuate the conditionally wounded.
