The authorities of the Kirovsky district of Khabarovsk offered to set up a rescue post at the place where the girl drowned on July 22, a letter about this has already been sent to the first deputy mayor of the city for municipal services Alexei Bogdanov, according to the news agency "Khabarovsk Krai Today". According to Yulia Fomina, Deputy Chairman of the Kirovsky District Management Committee on Social Issues, it was decided to use the experience of placing a municipal rescue post at Daldizel, which has been exhibited for 4 years for the period from May 25 to August 31.
- We have seven places in the area where people swim, although they are not intended for this. This is not only the bank of the Amur, but also two lakes Glininka and Pulzonka. However, the most in demand is the river bank. Here, as elsewhere, there are notices warning about the ban on swimming, but residents simply ignore them,”Fomina said. Unfortunately, we see a picture when children, even those who came with their parents, are often left unattended. Parents at the moment when the child is in the water are busy with their own business, read books, sit on their phones. Meanwhile, the bottom of the river near the shore is very insidious and at any moment the child can just quietly fall through and be caught up in the current,”notes Fomina.
The first deputy mayor of the city, Alexei Bogdanov, was asked to place a rescue post at the intersection of Boyko-Pavlova and Chkalov streets, since there is a large residential area in which many families with children live.
“It is important to understand that the installation of a rescue post does not automatically mean that it is allowed to swim here,” Fomina emphasized. - This speaks just about the opposite, that it is dangerous here. The staff of the post will regularly remind citizens of this.
According to the press service of the city administration, there are now four municipal rescue posts in Khabarovsk (in the Amurkabel and Daldizel areas, on the Central Embankment, near the Dolphin recreation center). 16 people are constantly on duty on them. Since the beginning of the bathing season, they have already saved 18 people, 9 of whom are children who were on the beaches unaccompanied by adults.
