NAGORNY, Samara region, June 19 (Itar-Tass) - A man who received wounds during explosions at a munitions testing range in the Samara region, the Middle Volga area, is in a heavy condition, a deputy chief physician of the general hospital in the town of Chapayevsk told Itar-Tass Wednesday.
All in all, a total of twenty-six people have been taken to hospital in connection with the incident at the testing range and most of them have incised wounds of the limbs. Of this number, twenty-two people were given aid in the outpatient department and two more were admitted to hospital.
“One of the wounded men was given a surgery,” said Vladimir Markin, the deputy chief physician. “He is in a stable heavy condition and is getting intensive post-surgical case.”
“The second man is staying in the traumatic surgery department with leg wounds,” he said.
The scope of individuals taken to hospital included residents of the township of Nagorny, which is located within less than 2 km away from the testing range, and the people who were traveling by the Volgograd-Samara automobile road at the time of the incident.
“Fragments of shells were hitting the cars and impacting people,” Markin said adding that the wounded man who is now taking an intensive care treatment course is a driver himself.”
