According to Komsomolskaya Pravda, a daily newspaper quoted a source in the law enforcement as "The women got scared and sustained scratches, but neither of them suffered serious injuries. It is chilling to imagine what could have happened if they slipped when the swings were at a maximum height."
The Ministry of Tourism in Dagestan said the swing 'did not meet safety standards because of which the women fell'. According to reports, law enforcement agencies are 'already conducting relevant checks to ensure that nothing threatens lives and health'.
