They Buried Their Only Daughter After a Terrible Plane Tragedy. 3 Days Later, They Discovered Something Shocking… Here’s What!
The young couple was in love and happy to go on honeymoon. They didn’t know that it would turn into the scariest honeymoon ever. The tragedy that befell Russia 35 years ago, has claimed several dozen lives. Relatives of the victims were forced to remain silent about the incident. Nobody thought there were survivors. One witness who had no problem to tell the truth.
In 1981 the young couple Vladimir and Larisa Savitski, were returning from their honeymoon. They were only 20 years old and their future seemed so beautiful and bright. On August 24th, the couple boarded on the flight 811 at the airport Komsomolsk-on-Amur. As the plane took off, Larisa and Vladimir never thought they’ll leave behind all their dreams and future. A military plane collided with the passenger plane which had 39 passengers. The military plane was flying so fast there was no time for the pilot to react. Most of the passengers died immediately after the collision. “We immediately lost the roof and wings, heard the screams,” recalls Larissa “I turned to my husband, and I saw him dead. At that moment I was sure that I will die.”
At this point, Larisa remembered a movie in which the girl survived the crash because she was in her seat. She decided to secure the seat and hope for the best. Clutching to the seat, in the next 8 minutes Larisa fell along with the remains of the plane. She was expecting death every second. Suddenly she saw trees, it was close to the ground. That’s all she remembers before she lost consciousness. “I opened my eyes and the first thing I saw was my husband’s body. He was 3-4 meters away from me.” Larisa recounts the terrible events and pain, “He looked like he wanted to see me one last time. Like he wanted to say goodbye to me.” Larisa spent the next couple of days in the Siberian woods trying to find help. As time passed, she was losing hope. On the third day, she found a local fisherman. She learned that her family already buried her because they received a note with a list of passengers.
The Soviet newspapers didn’t write about the tragedy that happened. The fact that the two planes collided was quickly covered up by the Soviet secret police. Relatives of the victims were made to keep quiet. Only in 2000 the details of this tragedy were set to light. Larisa, the only survivor, had long fought to overcome the injuries she suffered. After a few years she managed to move on, and to give birth to a son. It’s amazing what this woman had to suffer! “I think that was a military error-they overlooked that the passenger plane was flying on the same route,” says Larisa. “Every year on 24 August, I celebrate my second birthday. I still have the impression that part of me is still there and it will never land.”
