The tragedy occurred on 18 June 2016. Children from camp «the Park hotel «Syamozero» went along with the instructors on a walk around the lake. In the entire group was 51 people, four of them adults. When the storm began, two canoes with children carried out on the open water, and the raft with their comrades nailed to one of the Islands. Both canoes overturned. Killed 14 children.

Risking their lives

«That day, around 8 am, there was a severe storm on the lake, came the information that yesterday, a group of instructors with children left and never contacted. No one at first did not know what children are in trouble. I was asked to see if they are somewhere on the Islands in our area,» recalls Nicholas.

Seeing the high waves on the lake, joiners called his experienced staff: Andrew Severikova and Vladimir Dorofeev. They, despite the bad weather, first went in search of the children. Without waiting for emergency workers and risking their lives, they sailed on boats to the Islands, where they could be teenagers.

«The boys were sent, he went ashore to assess the situation, as the wind from the lake blew in our direction. Passed about 50 meters, found footing, then started to find things, backpack, hat, paddle. It became clear something was wrong,» recalls Nicholas.

Scary findings revealed soon. Most of the drowned children carried by the waves to the shore namely the village qudaamah. «Almost all of the drowned found on our coast. All the survivors who swam to the island, we were taken to her room, she collected the bodies. In search of the whole village ran, even though we didn’t ask anyone. The lads all responded very quickly and did everything we could,» says Nicholas.

Survivors from the capsized boat, the teenagers spent the night in anticipation of assistance and, perhaps, because not immediately able to grasp the scale of the incident. «We had to wrap them in sheets, all the guys were naked, in shorts and t-shirts, without shoes. First, it does not reach them, what actually happened, the effects of stress began an hour and a half – who has an arm or a leg cramp, someone began to cry. But, fortunately, this time, I arrived EMERCOM psychologists, who managed to provide the children proper assistance,» recalls Nicholas.

Didn’t have enough experience

Stolyarov was born and raised on the lake so a child knows how treacherous can be the Karelian water bodies.

«Instructors with children went to leeward. From their side there was no wind at all, under these conditions, the wind rises in the distance of 100-200 meters from the shore… Apparently to the point where they were moving, it was easier to walk than to return to the land. At least, they probably thought so, when he realized the extent of the danger. But have had neither the experience nor the knowledge,» suggests Nicholas.

By the decree of the President of Russia for bravery, courage and determination he showed in performing his civic duty and saving people in extreme conditions, the staff of the tourist complex «qudaamah» Vladimir Dorofeev Andrey Semerikov awarded the medal «For rescue perishing». Gratitude of the President of Russia for active participation in activities to save the children declared the Director of the complex, Nikolay Stolyarov, his wife Natalia and workers of the tourist complex Tatiana Kostycheva.
