18 crewmember died and only two survived.
Daughter of one of the perished is interested in finding out more about the events on 16th September.
Specially the Soviet points of view about the case are of interest.

That day, the ship was on a sentry post near Keri island to stop the Soviet submarines from accessing the Baltic Sea from the eastern part of the Gulf of Finland. Suddenly, a Russian bomber appeared.
The bomber descended rather low above the water and dropped a torpedo into the sea. "Uisko" was completely crushed and sank within seconds. 19 sailors went to the bottom of the sea.

The events took place in the following sequence: making a flight in the western part of the Gulf of Finland, at 17.05, Razgonin discovered north of Naissar Island“Single-pipe two-masted transport with a displacement of 2500-3000 tons, the depth of the board is 2.5 m, judging by the draft - loaded”. Due to the low cloudiness, Alexander Ilyushin walked at a low altitude, as a result of which his attack was completely sudden for the Finns. The patrolman who had stopped for hydroacoustic search did not have time to move or open anti-aircraft fire, and received a torpedo hit in the center of the hull. Nothing prevented Razgonin from making two circles and observing the agony of his victim, which after 8-10 minutes completely disappeared under water. Along with the ship, 19 sailors were killed, including Commander Lieutenant Sandholm, only one survived. In the following days of the month, the Razgonina crew was unsuccessful, although it flew several times on cruising flights.
