MOSCOW, December 30 (Itar-Tass) — The death toll in the plane crash outside Moscow on Saturday has risen to five after a 25-year-old female flight attendant died in Moscow’s City Clinical Hospital 7 on Sunday, the Russian Healthcare Ministry reports.
Her injuries were fatal, ministry sources said. “The patient has died despite all efforts of medics,” they stressed. The ministry expresses condolences to her next-of-kin.
Two injured people – a woman aged 26 (in a grave condition) and a 35-year-old man (in a critical condition), are in an intensive care unit of Moscow’s Pirogov City Clinical Hospital. One more patient, a 26-year-old man, is in the Sklifosovsky Research Institute of Emergency Medicine in a grave condition. He had spine surgery earlier on Sunday.
