I am very interested in that more recent tragedy ,and tried to find more info. Here is a much longer article with a lot of information about the search and how the survived girl could go down. The article is translated with google in English:https://m.ru.sputniknews.kz/society/20170824/3076927/poslednij-pohod-zagadochnaya-gibel-kazahstancev-vblizi-bajkala.html?mobile_return=no
Here are some points I found interesting :
If you collect the memories of different people who have happened to hear the girl’s story about what happened, the following picture is obtained.
... On the night of 4 to 5 August, there was bad weather - a thunderstorm rattled, a hurricane of such strength raged below that it was falling trees ... In the morning, at 11 o'clock, Alexander, the oldest and strongest of the guys, became ill. He fell. Nose, mouth and ears were bleeding. It is worth noting here that the head of the group raised the guy from childhood and therefore practically considered her son. She decides to stay with him, and instructs other children to try to descend lower to the edge of the forest zone. Senior appointed Denis. But - after a while two girls fall at once. They start rolling, tearing their clothes, grabbing their throats. Following them with similar symptoms fell Timur. Valentina was left alone with Denis. He offers - grab the most necessary of backpacks and run down. Valentina bent over a backpack to pull out a sleeping bag. When the girl looked up, Denis was already lying on the ground. Grabbing a sleeping bag, Valentina ran down. She spent the night under a stone, on the edge of the forest zone. Trees piled near like matches. The next morning the girl rose back - Lyudmila Ivanovna was still alive, but - on the last gasp. She showed how and where to go. "
Here's how the events are described from the words of the surviving girl in the report on search-and-rescue and transportation works: Denis began to hide behind the stones and run away, Tatiana beat her head against the stones, Victoria and Timur probably went astray. Lyudmila Ivanovna died of a heart attack. "
After collecting food and taking the card in the things of the head, on August 6, Valentina went in search of salvation. The search lasted for three days.
The girl went down to the river Anigte, where she spent the night of August 7th. The next day, she stumbled upon an abandoned relay tower at an altitude of 2,310 meters, where she spent another night all alone. The next morning, noticing the pillars going down, the tourist, in the hope that they would lead her to the people, set off on the road. However, the houses to which the wires were connected turned out to be abandoned.
But soon the girl went to the river Snow and went downstream. She had to spend the night here again, so that she could continue searching for people the next day. Having gone 7-8 kilometers, emaciated, she stopped and spread her sleeping bag on the bushes by the water. That is the meaning of the presence of lost tourists. At this time, a group of tourists from Kiev made a raft down the river, and they picked up the girl. Even in this case, Valentina is extremely lucky - they say that people are rarely in those places ...
At first, the girl did not talk to the tourists who had saved her - she was in great shock and was exhausted. As a result, whether as it “returns to life”, or because of the unwillingness (or prohibition) of rescuers to search for the dead tourists ... those were found only on 26 August.
The picture on arrival at the scene of the tragedy appeared depressing: mummified bodies, grimaces of horror on their faces ... Almost all of the dead were dressed in thin tights, while three were barefoot. The head Korovina lay on top of Alexandra.
The dead were buried only a month later - our delegates for more than two weeks sought the right to take the departed to their native land ...
... The bodies were taken by helicopter. The head of the search group "Search", lawyer Nikolai Fyodorov, who at that time was in the rescue expedition team, recalls that when information about the tragedy arrived, he and his colleagues were sent by plane to the scene.
“We were all assembled and sent to the scene of a team of six people. There was a task to find the bodies of the dead. When we arrived, the bodies were already prepared. One feature that we were told by those who shot the dead from the mountain was the bodies lying in pairs, and at a decent distance from each other (40-50 meters), ”Nikolai Fedorov said.“ The bodies were opened in Ulan-Ude. According to the experts, everyone died from hypothermia ... "
A lot of similarities with Dyatlov Pass plus the main testimonies from the survivor are quite suspicious and unbelievable. Like they wrote she had even double luck by meeting people in a boat in that river where it was known that people rarely go.
