SOCHI, July 8 (Itar-Tass) - Passengers of the Novosibirsk-Adler train, which crashed in Krasnodar Territory, have reached Sochi and left for homes and holiday resorts, the Sochi Administration told Itar-Tass on Monday.
In total, 515 people left for their destination places and 43 people continued their travel through the border of Abkhazia, the administration said.
The city and regional authorities, doctors and volunteers have met them at every station. Applications on property losses have been received.
First aid has been provided to seven passengers, who felt bad in Sochi. Two women have been hospitalized.
Holiday-makers, who went by the Novosibirsk-Adler train, have been provided aid to carrying them to resort areas. Oktyabrsky Sanatorium Director-General Olga Zaslavskaya told Itar-Tass that two families with children should arrive. The sanatorium’s employees did their best to help the family give discount rates. “Another family should also arrive. A child has been injured and his mother has been hospitalized in Kushchevka. Only the father has arrived with the child,” the director-general said.
Other sanatoriums’ employees pledge to create all conditions for people for a good rest. If it necessary, psychologists are ready to render assistance.
The train crashed at 5:10 p.m. on the section between Kislyakovskaya and Krylovskaya. A total of 108 people were injured and 13 people were hospitalized. About 300 metres of the railway bed and two supports of power lines were damaged. Criminal proceedings have been instituted.
