MANGALORE: The only woman survivor of the Air India Express crash of May 22, Sabrina Nasrin Haq (23), was discharged from the A.J. Hospital and Research Centre here on Monday.
Six of the eight survivors admitted to different hospitals have been discharged so far.
Of the remaining two, Puttur Ismal Abdulla (35) is in K.S. Hegde Hospital. He has minor burns and one of his knees has been hurt. Ummer Farooq Muhammed (26) is undergoing treatment for burns on his face and hands at A.J. Hospital.
Ms. Sabrina was returning from the United Arab Emirates to complete the last few months of her MBBS course at Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, after a short visit to her family. She had sustained a fracture on her left leg and a sprain on her right ankle, besides some minor injuries, in the crash.
Ms. Sabrina is the fifth person considered well enough to leave the hospital and recuperate at home. The first three to be discharged from the hospital were Mayankutty from Kannur and Krishnan Koolikkunnu from Uduna near Kasaragod, and Pradeep Kotian from Thannirbhavi here.
Mohammed Usman (Unity Hospital) and Joel Pratap D'Souza (Kasturbal Medical College Hospital) were sent home about a week ago.
A resident of Vamanjoor here, Joel (24), is recuperating at home.
With his right knee in a cast and a minor spinal injury, Joel requires bed rest, although he can walk about the house with the help of crutches.
