An UAZ car fell through the ice on the Amur River, eight km from the village of Vinogradovka in the Khabarovsk district. According to preliminary data, there were two people in the cabin. They could not get out of the car and died.

The incident happened on the evening of March 5. According to the press service of the regional GU Ministry of Emergencies, rescuers left for the place. They found a car 40 meters from the coast at a depth of four meters. To prevent the car from being carried away by the current, it was fixed with a cable. Today divers will search for the bodies of the dead.

Rescuers note that due to an increase in average daily temperatures, ice becomes brittle, its structure changes, sagging and voids form. EMERCOM employees recommend using only official ice ferries, as their condition and safety are monitored by specialists. Now 36 such crossings operate in the region.
