He is afraid that a helicopter will fly into the toilet, – a man about his son from a kindergarten in Brovary

Brovary and the residents of the city continue to recover after the tragedy with the helicopter crash that occurred on January 18th. Nikolai Antonov from Brovary, who, along with his son, was at the epicenter of the tragedy, recalled the terrible details of the helicopter crash.

Nikolai said that before the tragedy in Brovary, he just brought his Sergei to the kindergarten “Rodnichok”. A few minutes later, a helicopter with the leadership of the deceased Ministry of Internal Affairs crashed near the kindergarten.

The man looked out the window and saw a falling helicopter

The man remembered that went to a group in a kindergarten around 8:10 in the morning and wanted to change the child.

But at that moment he heard the sound of an engine and people thought it was a rocket or a drone flying. The teacher, according to him, said that there was no air raid alert.

I said that I would look out the window, maybe I could see something flying by, and after 5 seconds I noticed the silhouette of a red-gray helicopter, and that it was flying at me, – Nikolai said .

After that, he turned to the people and shouted: “Run away! Helicopter, run!”

The blast wave knocked the man down, and a piece of something hot flew to his lower back. Nikolai quickly threw him off and began to look for his son. The boy was standing a little further at the front door.

“It was a miracle that he was not hurt, not even scratched,” says Nikolai. He believes that his son was born in a shirt.

The man is at home with a burn

The helicopter flew over the building where Nikolai was and fell into building opposite, and the hot mixture flew to Sergei's group, which started a fire. “There was panic and very scary,” he recalled.

In the group where Nikolay takes the child, everyone survived. The man said that the teachers with the children went down to the basement, and he and his son left the territory of the kindergarten and started shouting to people that it was on fire, others needed to be saved.

The man is at home with a leg burn, a bruise in the lower chest. Most of all, his son worries him.

He was silent all day, did not eat, the temperature was 37.3, – said Sergey's father.

Psychologists said Nikolai that this is a reaction to the shock, that everything will be fine. The next day, the boy spoke, but the man still worries about him.

“He is afraid to go to the toilet, to the room. He is afraid that a red helicopter will fly there,” Nikolai concluded.
