IRCS Helicopter Saves Students in Mamlo Dam

These boy students, from a cultural center, were spending a recreational expedition near the dam on Sunday, July 14, to clean the surroundings voluntarily when the boat carrying them had an accident due to roaring water. They managed to get to the ground, but they were surrounded at a piece of land like an island.

Red Crescent sent an operational team along with a relief helicopter to save the students after the incident was reported to Emergency Operations Center (EOC) of the Relief and Rescue Organization of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS).

The Red Crescent team managed to find the students and transferred them to a safe spot by IRCS helicopter.
