Ten people injured in a Siberian air crash Sunday that killed at least 124 have been discharged from hospitals in Irkutsk
Ten people injured in a Siberian air crash Sunday that killed at least 124 have been discharged from hospitals in Irkutsk, local health officials said Tuesday. Another three people who were hurt when the Airbus burst into flames after crash landing have been transferred from the hospitals to a local rehabilitation center, one official said, adding that 41 people, including seven children, remained in Irkutsk hospitals. "Twelve people are in intensive care," the official said. An A-310 owned by Novosibirsk-based S7, formerly Sibir airline, was making a routine flight from Moscow to Irkutsk, the home airport for popular tourist destination Lake Baikal. It veered off the runway upon landing and caught fire after hitting a concrete wall and plowing into garages. Deputy Transportation Minister Boris Korol, however, said 50 people were still in Irkutsk hospitals, and added that 15 people had already gone home and two Polish citizens were in a hotel. On Monday, 12 injured passengers, including seven in a serious condition, were flown 3,000 miles from Irkutsk to Moscow by an Emergency Situations Ministry plane, the press service of the Health Ministry said. Four of them had sustained burns covering 35-45% of their bodies. In the Siberian city, which has suffered at least four major air crashes in the last 12 years, relatives of the victims are continuing to identify bodies. Alexander Semyonov, a senior assistant to Irkutsk's prosecutor, said the figure had reached 41 by 9 a.m. Moscow time (5 a.m. GMT).
