MOSCOW, September 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Two survivors of the crash of the Yak-42 plane near Yaroslavl – ice hockey player Alexander Galimov and steward Alexander Sizov - will be airlifted to Moscow for medical treatment. The departure is scheduled for 14:00-14:40 Moscow time, the Health and Social Development Ministry told Itar-Tass.
"Right now a discussion is on over the measures to deliver patients to Moscow," the source said, adding that most likely the victims would be evacuated on board an Emergency Situations Ministry plane.
Galimov will be taken to the Vishnevsky Institute of Surgery, and Sizov, to the Sklifosovsky Emergency Care Institute.
The intensive care vans with the survivors have now left for the airport Tunoshna, where the plane is waiting for them, sources at Yaroslavl’s Solovyov Hospital told Itar-Tass, adding that "for the safe transportation of the victims are all conditions have been created."
Previously, doctors doubted whether the victims were transportable. However, today's council made a decision to take them to Moscow hospitals.
The Yak-42 crashed near Yaroslavl at 16:05 Moscow time on Wednesday. It was carrying the ice hockey team Locomotive, which was flying to Belarus for a regular game with Dynamo (Minsk). Of the 45 people on board only two were found alive.
