Crash survivors remain critical

The two survivors of the plane crash that virtually wiped out the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice hockey team remain in critical condition, RIA Novosti quoted a Health Ministry official as saying on Friday. Russian national side player Alexander Galimov and crew-member Alexander Sizov survived Wednesday’s crash, which killed 43 people.

Police eyewitnesses said Galimov walked away from the wreckage of the crash, despite suffering burns to 90 percent of his body.

Media reports said on Friday that Galimov had spoken to his father and other family members after being brought to hospital.
