45 injured survivors from the Yichun air crash have been transferred to major cities like Beijing and Harbin for better treatment. The other 9 survivors will stay in hospitals in Yichun as their injuries can be treated there.
On Saturday afternoon, a plane from China's Southern Airlines arrived at Beijing International Airport with 10 injured survivors.
The aircraft was altered to accommodate stretchers so patients could be more comfortable.
An injured passenger said, "Thank you, thank you. That's all I can say."
The 10 patients were taken to two hospitals in Beijing soon after landing. This is the fourth group of survivors that have been transferred to other provinces for better treatment. They suffer from fractures, burns and psychological trauma.
Guo Jinhe, Beijing Municipal Health Bureau, said, "We have appointed two hospitals who specialize in treating burns and fractures. We have prepared a lot."
In Harbin, capital of Heilongjiang Province, 32 injured survivors are receiving treatment in a major hospital. 15 of them are still in critical condition. Medical crews are trying their best to save their lives. Doctors say they have allocated a medical team to each of the survivors to provide them with comprehensive medical treatment and psychological therapy.
