ANKARA, August 15 (Itar-Tass) —— A plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry is to fly from Antalya with four injured Russian citizens and a newborn baby on board, Alexander Tolstopyatenko, the Russian consul-general in Antalya, told ltar-Tsss.
“Measures to prepare the evacuation of Russian citizens by a plane of the Emergencies Ministry have been completed. Four injured Russian citizens and a baby were on board the plane. All of them are residents of Moscow or the Moscow region,” the consul said. Their relatives were also on board the plane.
“One of the group is a 62-year old man who suffered a cerebral crisis. Another one has a severe injury of the spine from a fall in a swimming pool. “Three persons met with a road accident near the city of Alanya through the fault of a Turkish driver. A special cuvette had been brought from Russia for the transportation of the prematurely born baby,” the consul-general said.
According to Tolstopyatenko, the plane arrived in Antalya at noon and the consulate-general got down to dealing with matters of Russian medic’s work. The medics’ team consisted of 20 specialists of All-Russian Center of Emergency Medicine and of Tsentrospas unit of the Emergencies Ministry. One of the most complicated questions was arranging for the transportation of a large amount of specialized medical equipment across the border.
Because of the gravity of injuries some people met with difficulties with health insurance coverage of their treatment and interference of diplomats was needed. “We have practically resolved all the matters of the pay for medical services under health insurance and to a large degree settled the situation with exceeding the limit of health insurance for some of the injured,” Tolstopyatenko said.
