Master of tanker Volgoneft-117 died on board on Sep 14 from heart attack. Vessel was in eastern Gulf of Finland en route to Vysotsk port. After Master fainted, vessel requested medevac, MRCC contacted Russian Emergency Agency to provide helicopter. They refused, saying that there’s no available helicopter in Gulf of Finland area, capable of people airlift. MRCC found fast speed boat in Primorsk port, and sent a doctor, who on arrival found Master dead. Maybe helicopter could save the Captain, but there are no helicopters for sea rescue in Russia
