About 600 fishermen were cut off from the coast in the Mordvinov Bay near Cape Svobodny on Sakhalin due to a crack in the ice. They could be saved in more than five hours.

The signal that people were torn off the coast came at 13:00 on Sunday, January 26. 18 rescuers were sent to the scene, equipment was used: six cars, four boats, three snowmobiles and a hovercraft. The Mi-8 Ministry of Emergencies was ready for take-off.

According to the press service of the regional government, none of the fishermen was injured, the bulk went ashore on foot alone or with rescuers. The remaining 120 fishing enthusiasts had to indicate the route using light and sound alerts, flares and smoke bombs. It was possible to bring ashore all the breakaways at 18:35 local time.
