New Delhi, March 25 (IANS) The condition of Jet Airways’ crew member who was injured in Brussels terror attacks is stable, the airline said on Friday.
“We have spoken to Dr. Steven at the hospital where the crew member, Nidhi Chaphekar, is under treatment. The doctor has confirmed that she is in a stable condition and not in coma,” the airline said in a statement.
“She is resting and under sedation for her comfort,” the statement said.
The airline disclosed details about Chaphekar’s health after the media reports claimed that she has been placed in a medically induced coma.
Chaphekar, a mother of two from Mumbai, was among two crew members of the airline who were injured in Tuesday’s bomb blasts that rocked Brussels’ Zaventem airport and left more than 30 people killed.
A photograph showing the 40-year-old flight crew member of Jet Airways sitting dazed and bloodied, with her bright yellow uniform ripped, went viral soon after the airport blasts and become an iconic image of the attacks.
Chaphekar’s husband, who flew from Mumbai to Paris and travelled by road to Brussels, is at the hospital with her.
Meanwhile, Jet Airways flew out the passengers who were stranded in Brussels after the attacks. Some passengers returned to Delhi early Friday, while others left for Newark from Amsterdam.
