TYUMEN, April 5 (Itar-Tass) — The condition of three persons who survived the ART 72 plane crash near Tyumen on April 2 has slightly improved, director of the regional public health department Andrei Kudryakov told reporters on Thursday.
There are 11 plane crash survivors in Tyumen hospitals. Six patients are in critical condition. Another two are in serious but stable condition.
Kudryakov noted that almost all the victims show the development of traumatic decease.
"It's premature to make prognoses until they overcome this acute period, which normally lasts ten days," he added.
After the victims find their bearings, they will face long work with psychologists. Many will require additional surgery to restore crucial body functions.
The ATR-72 belonging to the YUTair company flying from Tyumen to Surgut fell to the ground soon after take-off from the Roshchino airport near the village of Gorkovka. It carried 39 passengers and four crew. Just 12 persons survived. One of the victims was flown to Moscow for treatment.
