In Kamchatka, a firefighter swam 40 meters in freezing water to save a child


In the city of Vilyuchinsk, Kamchatka Territory, a girl was rescued from an ice floe that broke off the shore. On this subject informed publication “News News”.

Children played on an ice floe near the shore in Krashennikov Bay. Eyewitnesses saw one of the patches of ice break off and called for rescuers. One of them, firefighter Nikolai Sharov, tied himself up with a rope and swam after the girl. He swam 40 meters in freezing water. Having reached the pack ice, Sharov was able to tow it to the pier.

“The depth at this place is quite large and the water temperature is extremely low,” the regional department of the Ministry of Emergency Situations noted.

In December, a moored ship caught fire in Moscow’s Borisovskiye ponds. It was located 40 meters from the shore. According to the media, Irina Maslova, 42, lived on the ship. She turned on the gas stove, which caused a fire. The woman was evacuated by rescuers.
