PARIS, January 21 (Itar-Tass) — Russian tourists injured in a road accident in France will be discharged from hospital by the end of the week, Mikhail Perfilyev representing the Ertzog travel operator in France said on Monday.
According to him, “the condition of all injured people is stable” and some of them were successfully operated on during the weekend. “Medics say they can be discharged from hospital in three or four days, after which they will be able to get back home without risk for their health,” Perfilyev said.
He specified that six Russians with different injuries are still in local hospitals in France. Three of them were hospitalized to Chambery, and three more people are in Grenoble. Close relatives of some of the injured tourists, who were with them during the trip, have stayed in France. “They were all accommodated in hotels close to hospitals,” Perfilyev said.
The road accident that involved the Russians occurred Saturday morning in the southeast Savoy department when a bus belonging to a local logistics company overturned while carrying a group of Russian mountain skiers from a ski resort to Grenoble airport.
“The driver lost control of the bus and it went into a skid and fell on its side,” an official at Savoy prefecture said. There were 43 Russian tourists in the bus. Some of them flew to Moscow from Grenoble on Saturday. Another group of Russian tourists left France on Sunday. One more injured passenger will fly back home later on Monday, as his condition is satisfactory for that.
During the weekend, Russian tourists filed a collective claim in France asking to investigate the road accident. However, sources from the Chambery gendarmerie which received the claim, said action proceedings might take several months.
