ROSTOV ON DON, January 5 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Boris Yudin, who received injuries at an Italian ski resort, will remain at Trento Hospital indefinitely, the Krasnodar Territory emergency response department told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
Yudin received serious traumas. His spinal column was badly hurt that is why doctors recommended him to refrain from transporting the Russian citizen to Russia.
The two Russians who were severely injured in the snowmobile crash in the Italian ski resort of Alpe Cermis are in heavy, but stable condition.
Russian Consul-General in Milan Alexei Paramonov told Itar-Tass on Saturday that Boris Yudin and Azat Yagafarov were taken to the Santa Chiara hospital in the city of Trento. Both are conscious.
Boris Yudin is in heavy, but stable condition. He is in a neurological ward. He has injuries of internal organs. A consulate representative talked with him. The patient asked to help his son return to Krasnodar to his relatives, Paramonov said, noting that 17-year-old Vyacheslav Yudin did not participate in the night snowmobile ride, in which six Russians died on slopes of the resort of Alpe Cermis (Trentino-Alto Adige). Among them are Boris Yudin's wife and daughter.
The other survivor, Azat Yagafarov, 58, is to undergo two orthopedic operations. He has compound limb fractures.
The two survivors are conscious. An official consulate representative talked with them. Though there is no threat to their lives, they will remain under the care of doctors for a long time, the consul said.
Yagafarov who worked at the resort will be questioned by an investigator. It was him who was driving the snowmobile that ran off the route to a steep slope and tumbled from a height of about 100 metres. One of the versions is speeding in the difficult mountain area. Another version is technical malfunction of the snowmobile.
Italian authorities may open a criminal case over the accident.
The group of tourists, members of families -- Denis and Irina Kravchenko, Yulia, Lyudmila and Boris Yudins, Vyacheslav Sleptsov and Rafilya Pshenichnaya, who is also a worker of the tourism sector, went down in the snowmobile from a mountain restaurant. The ride ended in the crash.
The Consulate General in Milan stays in contact with Italian authorities and services that investigate the crash causes and with the administration of the hospital. The consulate does everything for the injured people to receive good medical care.
Each of the Russian tourists was insured for 30,000 euros by the Alfa insurance company, the executive director of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia, Maya Lomidze, told Itar-Tass.
Six of the Russians were tourists, and the other two Russian citizens, who were together with them, are tourism service workers. The Russians went to the resort through the Danko Travel operator, she said.
