Bodies of 40 Children Trapped in Playroom of Sunken River Boat

Bodies of 40 Children Trapped in Playroom of Sunken River Boat


SYUKEYEVO, Russia -- Rescuers say there is little hope of finding any more people alive after an overloaded tourist boat sank in the Volga River, killing 128 people in Russia's worst river accident in three decades.

Rescuers say the bodies of 40 children may be trapped in the playroom of a pleasure boat that went down in a heavy storm.



Rescuers used life vests to bring dozens of bodies to shore in a grim recovery operation accompanied by wails from grieving parents and anger from the Kremlin over what seemed to be basic transport security lapses.



The worst river boat disaster since 1983 came on top of a recent series of deadly Russian plane crashes and other technical glitches that highlighted the vast work the country needs to do to upgrade its Soviet era infrastructure.

But the pain of what happened on one of Russia's most important rivers became increasingly unbearable on Monday as the hours passed and the number of survivors refused to edge up beyond the 79 people reported on Sunday.

Russia's emergency minister told President Dmitry Medvedev 208 people made it on board the Bulgaria in gross violation of rules that permitted only 140 people to use the 56-year-old craft.

Other reports said the Bulgaria had not undergone renovations since 1980 and was equipped with only two of the four required rescue boats - with even those not being lowered because the craft was swallowed by the waters within minutes.

Medvedev responded by demanding a review of Russia's entire transportation infrastructure and requesting inquiries into why the ship had sailed with a broken left engine and without an operating licence.

"We have enough old tubs floating around," Medvedev sternly told a government meeting in reference to outdated vessels.

"Based on the information we have today, the ship was in an unsuitable condition," Medvedev said in nationally televised remarks.

The range of violations detected on the ship are a particular embarrassment to Russian officials who are preparing the country for major international events such as the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi and the 2018 football World Cup.

Russian infrastructure problems and corruption have raised the most serious questions among organiser of both events and Medvedev has been at pains in recent months to convince the global community of imminent improvements.

The mood at the site of the disaster on Monday switched from shock to horror and disbelief.

Rescuers spent nearly 24 hours scouring the turbulent waters before encountering a Bulgaria cargo hold that was set up as a children's playpen with a special sandlot.

Officials said their worst fears were confirmed with that find.

"The divers inspected the craft and found 30 to 40 children in the cargo hold," a member of the rescue operation told the Interfax news agency.

His comments supported earlier survivors' reports of dozens of children entering the playpen only moments before the boat sank.

The rescuer said the children's bodies will be recovered only after the entire ship is raised in a delicate operation requiring the help of special barges equipped with cranes.

"The current is very strong in that section of the river," the rescuer said.

Officials are preparing a series of criminal investigations into why the Bulgaria set sail this weekend without a proper operating licence and whether criminal negligence was involved.

Russia's transportation minister said he planned to investigate survivor accounts of how a barge and an oil tanker had passed the stricken craft without stopping while people struggled in the water for their lives.

"We know these ships and their captains' names," RIA Novosti quoted Transport Minister Igor Levitin as saying.

"We will use every means within the law to punish them as severely as possible," Levitin said.

A survivor named Nikolai Chernov told state television: "Two boats went by without stopping even though we waved and waved."

Homeless man charged with stalking Mormon church president

SALT LAKE CITY — A homeless man was charged Friday with stalking the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Benjamin Tucker Staples, 36, was charged with stalking, a class A misdemeanor.

Salt Lake police officers were called to the LDS Church Office Building, 50 E. North Temple, on July 5 after receiving a report of a trespasser. Officers were told Staples had been to the building about five times since June 25 asking to speak with President Thomas S. Monson.

prior appearance that he is not to return to the premises," the charges filed in 3rd District Court state. "Each prior incident, the defendant was arrested and booked into the jail."

Staples, who has the alias of "Jesus Christ" listed in the Salt Lake County Jail booking information, told officers "he intends to keep returning to the offices" until he meets President Monson, the charges state.

Each time, he refused to leave voluntarily, "choosing instead to be arrested by police," according to the charges.

"Church security is concerned for the safety of the president and those employed in the building because of defendant's persistence even after being told not to return and given a written trespass order," the charges state.

Staples is being held in jail on $25,000 bail.

Baertschi's Calgary connection grows

Great article from the Calgary Herald on Sven Baertschi the Flames first pick in this years Draft!!!!

Baertschi's Calgary connection grows



BY VICKI HALL, CALGARY HERALD JULY 6, 2011



Sven Baertschi is beginning to believe in the mysterious power of coincidences.

"At the start of the season, my roommate was Spencer Bennett, and he was drafted to Calgary here," the newly-signed 18-year-old said Tuesday at Calgary Flames prospects camp "The first day, I ask him if he's got a shirt I can sleep in.

"He gave me a Calgary Flames shirt. I slept the whole season in that shirt, then to get drafted by Calgary, and now the world championship is in Calgary, so that's . . . ."

Karma?

"Karma, yeah."

The karma tripled Tuesday with the announcement Baertschi's native Switzerland is part of Pool A at the world junior hockey championships.

Pool A will play the round-robin in Calgary, so Flames fans can keep close tabs on the future Flame.

Pool B -a group that includes Canada and the United States -is assigned to Edmonton.

All medal-round games are slated for Calgary.

Are the world juniors a big deal for a kid from Switzerland?

"That's for sure," said Baertschi, Calgary's first-round selection (11th overall) at the 2011 entry draft. It's going to be fun.

"It's special."

Will he serve as captain of the Swiss?

"I'm not sure," he said. "You never know."

The round-robin portion of the tournament opens Dec. 26 and runs through Dec. 31. The medal round is slated for Jan. 2 to Jan. 5 at the Saddledome.

Group A, playing in Calgary, is composed of the defending gold medallists Russia, Latvia, Slovakia, Sweden and Baertschi's Switzerland. Group B, playing in Edmonton, includes Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland and the United States.

Markus Granlund, drafted 45th overall by the Flames, is expected to suit up for his native Finland. Team Canada has invited Patrick Holland to the summer development camp next month in Edmonton.

"I'm not getting too far ahead of myself," said Holland, a seventh round (193rd overall) selection of the Flames in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

"I'm sure if there's a ghost roster right now, I wouldn't be on anybody's list.

"I'm just going to go there, do the best I can, and do the best I can do. It would be super exciting Anything to put a Team Canada sweater on. That would be awesome."
