MOSCOW, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- The three survivors in a Moscow air crash are in stable condition, an official from the Russian Health Ministry said Friday.
One survivor -- a 26-year-old stewardess -- has been moved to a general ward from intensive care while the other two also saw their condition improved even though they remain in intensive care, the unnamed official told the Itar-Tass news agency.
The three survivors were among the eight crew members aboard a Tu-204 passenger plane, which veered off runway and caught fire on Saturday upon landing at Moscow's Vnukovo Airport. The other five crew members were killed.
The cause of the incident has so far remained unknown. On Monday, the Interstate Aviation Committee ruled out the possibility that the condition of the runway caused the deadly accident.
