Alexander Galimov was one of just two survivors of Wednesday's tragic plane crash in Russia. He is no longer a survivor. After a courageous battle, Galimov succumbed to burns suffered in the crash, which had covered 90 percent of his body. He was 26 years old.
Galimov was the lone surviving player of the initial crash, which including him claimed 44 people. The entire Lokomotiv Yaroslavl KHL team perished in the crash. Galimov had been transported from Yaroslavl, the site of the crash, to a hospital in Moscow to receive special care in an attempt to save his life.
The final survivor, flight engineer Alexander Sizov, also recovers in a different Moscow hospital this Monday. His injuries were not of the same severity as Galimov, and doctors have said that his life is no longer in danger.
There are still no conclusions about the cause of the crash. The plane was carrying the team to Minsk, Belarus where they were set to open their season. KHL games, postponed following the crash, will resume on Monday.
