MOSCOW, September 21 (Itar-Tass) – Flight attendant Alexander Sizov who survived the crash of the Yakovlev-42 jet near Yaroslavl Setpember 7 is on the mend and may leave hospital in two weeks’ time, Mogeli Khubutia, the director of the Nikolai Sklifosovsky Emergency Medicine Institute said Wednesday.
“Thanks to the efforts of intensive care doctors and trauma surgeons, his bodily condition has moved from the very heavy to the medium heavy one,” Dr Khubutia told the Rossiya’24 news channel.
“Alexander Sizov is alert, in a fairly good mood and eager to answer the doctors’ questions,” he said. “We hope there’s no threat to his life now.”
The young man will have to get several plastic surgeries to conceal the aftermaths of burns.
At the moment, he is staying in a separate ward of the Sklifosovsky Institute’s burns unit and he can stand up with the aid of crutches.
Physicians say he will likely be able to return to his professional activity as a flight attendant.
The crash of the Yakovlev-42 medium-range airliner seconds after takeoff from the Yaroslavl airport took away the lives of 44 people, including all the players, coaches and assistant staff of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice hockey club.
One of the players, Alexander Galimov, died in a Moscow hospital five days after the crash. Flight attendant Sizov is the only survivor.
