Passenger Saves Lives
ST. PETERSBURG (SPT) — A bus passenger saved a number of lives when she took the steering wheel from a dying driver on the St. Petersburg-Murmansk highway on Saturday, Fontanka reported.
The bus was traveling at a speed of 90 kilometers an hour when the driver suddenly felt unwell. He managed to say to the woman sitting next to him “Drive,” before losing consciousness. The woman removed the key from the ignition and steered the bus for several hundred meters until it came to a stop.
The driver, however, died from an apparent heart attack.
ST. PETERSBURG (SPT) — The city’s Narodny supermarket closed for 60 days last week.
Numerous inspections of the store revealed violations of sanitary legislation, migration and labor regulation.
An earlier court order to suspend the store’s activities was found to contain bureaucratic irregularities, Interfax reported.
