The death toll in the disaster at a Russian hydroelectric power plant rose to 72 on Sunday as searchers pulled out another body, news agencies reported, citing investigators. "The body of the 72nd victim has been found. It is a man, his identity has been established," Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the investigative committee of Russian prosecutors, told the RIA-Novosti state news agency. In addition to the 72 people confirmed to have been killed, three more are missing and presumed dead as a result of the disaster at Sayano-Shushenskaya dam in southern Siberia, Russia's largest hydrolectric power plant. The disaster occurred on August 17 when a massive surge of water flooded the plant's main turbine hall, engulfing around 100 workers.
