All bodies of Ka-32 helicopter crash discovered

Rescuers have discovered all nine bodies of the victims of the September 4 helicopter crash in a mountainous area outside the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi.

According to a source in the Russian Emergencies Ministry, the two missing bodies were located this morning and are now being lifted from the crevice they were found in.

The remaining seven bodies and two flight recorders were dispatched to Sochi yesterday.

The helicopter, a Ka-32, was heading towards a tourist camp outside Sochi with five passengers and four crew on board when it crashed into a hill, presumably because of poor visibility in the area. The wreckage was discovered the next day on the bottom of a crevice about 120 meters deep.
