At the moment when Elena and her helicopter fell on the kindergarten Milan's daughter were inside the building. They had no chance of being saved.
” It seemed that his cry could be heard for several kilometers. We did not give up hope for a second that mother and daughter would survive. Until twelve o'clock they traveled to all the hospitals, hoping that they were somewhere in the burn center. But they were not on the list of victims. Bywhen they found out that the mayor had invited Alexander to the morgue, everything went cold inside. It turned out that Elena and Milana were burned alive… Sasha managed to recognize his daughter only by her earrings, while his wife’s body was severely mutilated,” – Yulia Smilovets told reporters in a comment.
