Passenger Oleg Molchanov, who was sitting on row 12 the wreck of the liner SSJ-100, told about the events on the plane after the fire on the forum “Yaplakal”.
From his posts that the people who previously have been accused of saving his baggage, they impede the evacuation of others, were passengers in the business class and their bags are not interfered with. Stampede, according to Molchanova, was not there.
The surviving passenger said that in the back of the plane throw the ladders, oxygen masks are also not dropped — almost none of the sitting on 12 some did not survive. He also added that all the victims were given assistance and provided food, “and even vodka.”
“And survival — there is a moment of luck and lack of panic. One breath of black smoke, and the man will not rise again. And considering that there is no visibility, and save him, no one would be stupid not visible. It is impossible to breathe. Full face masks in the plane, well, or couldn’t find,” said the passenger.
According to Molchanov, to stop the aircraft almost all the passengers sat in their seats and no one was killed from the impact. He suggests that sitting on 12 number of passengers either died from the lack of ladder in the tail of the aircraft, or burned from the proceeds from the wing of flame, or poisoned with carbon monoxide.
The passenger claims that the accident occurred due to a lightning strike and subsequent fall thrust: after the jump aircraft on the runway left side of the wing disintegrated and the fire started. “I was sitting on the wing, left side. The blow was definitely — I was staring at the clouds just flew into a cloud. Lightning was visible, a sound I haven’t heard,” he writes.
