MOSCOW, September 7 (Itar-Tass) — Physicians assess the condition of two survivors of Wednesday's jet crash near the Russian city of Yaroslavl as heavy, sources in the public health quarters of the Yaroslavl region told Itar-Tass.
"The two survivors are in hospital with severe burns and doctors assess their condition as a heavy one," a source said.
The accident that carried away the lives of the Lokomotiv ice hockey team in full force occurred at around 16:00 hours Moscow Standard Time /12:00 hours GMT/ after a Yakovlev-42 jet of the Yak-Servis charter airline had taken off from the Yaroslavl airport to hold a course for the Belarussian capital Minsk.
Russia’s Federal Service for Civil Aviation /Rosaviatsiya/ says the jet failed to ascend to a secure altitude after getting airborne and staked the antenna of a beacon located some 2 kilometers away from the airport’s runways.
Of the forty-five people aboard, only two survived. Officials at the Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ said earlier the bodies of 29 people had been found.
EMERCOM also said that eleven of the forty-five persons aboard were citizens of other countries.
