MOSCOW, April 15 (Itar-Tass) - A plane of the Russian Emergencies Ministry carrying Russian citizens injured in a road accident near Antwerp on Sunday arrived from Belgium in Moscow. A 17-year old girl will be undergoing medical treatment in Moscow. Seven other people will be taken by the same plane to Volgograd, a spokesman for the Russian Emergencies Ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.

The Il-78 plane touched down at Ramenskoye airfield near Moscow at 23:11 Moscow time. A team of medics was ready in the airfield. The severely injured girl was rushed to the Russian Children’s Clinical Hospital.

During the flight the girl and five other injured persons were in specialized medical modules. They were given the necessary aid by doctors of the Centrospas unit, surgeons, anesthesiologists - emergency physicians, and psychologists.

Two teenagers uninvolved in the road accident were also on board the plane.

The plane will take off from Ramenskoye airfield for Volgograd where 29 people - 25 children and four adults - were brought by another EMERCOM plane from Brussels on Monday morning.

Thus, all the Russians involved in the terrible accident have left Belgium.

The tragedy happened ten kilometers away from Antwerp in the morning of April 14. The bus carrying 31 school pupils aged from 12 to 17 and nine adults accompanying them crashed through guardrails and ended up on its side under a raised road. Five people got killed, three of them, including a teenager, Russian, and two Poles, the drivers. Nineteen people were injured, 13 lightly.
