One of the Plane Crash Survivors Dies in Hospital
Alexander Galimov

Russian "Lokomotiv" hockey player and one of the only two survivors of last week's plane crash, Alexander Galimov, has died in hospital, reported by hospital officials.

      "Alexander Galimov died from severe burns in the burn center of the Vishnevsky Institute of Surgery. We did everything possible to save him", burn specialist Andrei Alekseev said.

      On Tuesday Galimov, who had burns to 90% of his body, was sent to Moscow Institute of Surgery together with another survivor, crew member Alexander Sizov. He was put to a barbiturate-induced coma and medics were keeping him alive by all the means in their power, but weren't able to overcome the severest injuries.

      Sizov was moved from intensive care to a ward on Monday and his condition is serious but stable, hospital officials said.

      25-years-old Galimov, a Yaroslavl native, began his career in 2004 and was a member of the silver-medal winning Russian U20 team at the 2005 World Junior Ice-Hockey Championships. He also played for the senior national team.

      He became the forty-fourth victim of the terrible tragedy, when a plane carrying the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice-hockey team crashed during take-off near Yaroslavl, some 300 kilometers from Moscow.
