As reports to RIA Novosti, one of animals died, the second did not suffer. To help a camel to get out of the crumpled truck, the staff of the Ministry of Emergency Situations used fire hydrants. However they had problems. As road accident occurred at night, rescuers did not find transport for transportation of an animal. Because of it the camel went to the next settlement independently around 2:00 together with the fire truck. At this time air temperature equaled almost – 40 °C. It is noted that it was succeeded to reach the settlement only by 7:00. Slavik's camel was placed in the warm utility room of fire service. Now its condition is estimated as stable.
