June, 11 Cherikov District Emergency Office was reported about a woman drowning by the bridge over the Sozh River. A diving brigade and an ambulance were sent to the place of the incident immediately.
Specialists searched the bank of the river and found an unconscious woman 400 m from the bridge. Because of the landscape an ambulance was not able to get to the place. Emergency officers had to use a boat to take the woman to the ambulance. Soon she was taken to the resuscitation department of Cherikov Central District Hospital. It turned out that after drinking alcohol with her husband a woman (unemployed Lyudmila Vorobieva, born in 1971) jumped down from a ten-meter high bridge over the Sozh River. Campers which were not far from the place of the incident took her out of the water. The woman didn’t explain the reason of her action.
