Plane Crash Survivor Dies

Police Colonel Sergei Isakov, the only passenger to survive a plane crash in the Krasnoyarsk region this week, died in the hospital Wednesday of his injuries, which included broken bones and burns to 80 percent of his body, Interfax reported.

Isakov’s death brought the death toll in the accident, which happened in the Arctic town of Igarka early Tuesday, to 12. Three of four crew members of the An-24 twin turboprop survived but remain hospitalized.

Investigators have not said what caused the crash. The plane went down 700 meters short of the runway while trying to land in thick fog. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
