MOSCOW (Reuters) - A helicopter crashed in northwest Siberia on Friday, killing 19 people on board, Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency said on Saturday.
Three crew members and 16 passengers died when the Russian-made Mi-8 helicopter came down late on Friday in adverse weather conditions.
Two survivors were injured and a third unscathed, TASS news agency reported, citing a regional health official.
The helicopter was carrying employees of a contractor from oil major Rosneft's Suzun oilfield, part of the Vankor deposit, Russia's northernmost onshore oil production project.
