OMSK, August 18 (Itar-Tass) - Eight people, who have received injuries as a result of the collision between the Polesye river vessel and a boat on the Irtysh River, are in grave condition, Omsk Region Healthcare Minister Andrei Storozhenko told Itar-Tass.
The minister said a total of 34 injured people, including seven children, remained in clinics.
Earlier in the day, Omsk Region Governor Viktor Nazarov visited the injured people. “Now the main thing is to pass through the consequences of the tragedy and start recovering,” the governor said, adding that material support had been provided to injured people.
The collision occurred near the village of Novaya Stanitsa, 10 kilometres from Omsk, on August 17. Four passengers died at once and two women died of injuries later. A total of 53 people were injured.
The Polesye captain, who violated the navigation rules, has been arrested. When the tragedy occurred he was in a drunken state. Criminal proceedings have been instituted (violations of navigation safety rules resulting in the death of two or more persons).
