MOSCOW, July 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov does not rule out that the number of those seeking medical help after the rail road accident in Russia’s southern Krasnodar Territory might go up.
“More than 70 people were hurt, 15 of them were hospitalized. This number will increase,” he said on Sunday at a meeting of the working group of the government emergencies commission.
“Each of those hurt should be given concrete specialized help,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the local emergencies department told Itar-Tass that a repair train reached the accident site.
“One of the key causes of the accident is fact that the rails do not conform with the standards because of the hot weather, among other reasons,” the spokesman said.
The North Caucasian railway has arranged to buses to evacuate the train’s passenger to the settlement of Krylovskaya. The local administration is taking measures to provide accommodations to these people.
The accident has delayed three passenger trains. The emergencies minister has demanded medical help, meals and drinking water be provided to passengers of these trains.
