MOSCOW, September 13 (Itar-Tass) —— Crewmember Alexander Sizov who survived in the Yak-42 crash remains in heavy condition, but there is positive change. He was transferred from the intensive care unit to a common ward on Monday, Sklifosovsky First Aid Institute Director Anzor Khubutia told a briefing on Tuesday.
"I think he has great chances to return to normal life and professional activities. His condition is not life-threatening," the doctor assured.
It is better for Sizov not to speak now, but it is possible that the patient will talk with his relatives later this week.
The patient in the clinic had an operation on the thighbone (which was broken in the crash). When the bandages are removed, he may need plastic surgery, depending on how scars from the burns are formed, Khubutia said.
The doctor noted the patient would remain in the clinic for the next few months.
Sizov is the only survivor from the Yak-42, which crashed near Yaroslavl on September 7. The rest 44 people who were aboard died.
