A Russian windsurfer died last Monday after crashing into the passenger hydrofoil Meteor in the city of  St. Petersburg.

Artiom Akimov, 18, was part of the Russian youth windsurfing team. He was training when the fatal accident occurred in the waters of the Gulf of Finland. A surveillance camera recorded the last seconds of the young athlete’s life.

During its performance, it crossed the gulf, it arrived until the island Vasílievski, it gave the return and in its return, to about 60 kilometers per hour, it hit completely against the boat.

In a review of the impact, it could not yet be determined why the captain of the ship paid no attention to Akimov and did not slow down. The divers found his body several hours later.

From the Ministry of Emergency Situations, they said that when approaching the route of the ships, the victim violated the maritime legislation.
