Kaloev, who lost his family in plane crash over Lake Constance, became father of twins

UFA, 26 December 2018. /Bashinform News Agency, Natalia Ovcharuk/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
Vitaly Kaloev from Vladikavkaz, who lost his wife, son and daughter in a plane crash over Lake Constance, became a father of twins. The man married in the summer of 2018, and yesterday his wife Irina gave birth to twins: a boy and a girl. The names of newborns have not been disclosed yet.
In 2002, the plane of the Bashkir Airlines during a flight to Barcelona in the sky over Lake Constance collided with a DHL air-freighter Boeing 757-200PF. Then 71 people died (two pilots from the Boeing and 69 passengers of the Russian Tu-154). Among the dead (52 children) was the family of Vitaly Kaloev. After that, the man in despair killed a culprit of the largest air crash - flight operations officer Peter Nielsen. Kaloev went to jail for this murder but was released early.
A similar story happened with a resident of Bashkiria Vladimir Savchuk. In the same plane crash, he lost his wife and two children. Later he met Mariyat Artyukhova, who gave birth to a son and a daughter.
