BARNAUL (Sputnik) - Russian plane with over 160 people aboard and flying from Sochi, a city located in the south-western part of the country, to Omsk in the Russian Siberian region made an emergency landing in western Siberia's Novosibirsk region.
The number of people who requested medical assistance after an aircraft made an emergency landing in a field in Russia's southern Novosibirsk Region has risen to five, but none of the children on board the plane were injured, the regional health department said on Tuesday.
"After examining the passengers, two adults, preliminary diagnosed with 'bruise' were sent to a central district hospital for an X-ray. Two more adults received medical assistance on the site because of an increase in blood pressure and an attack of bronchial asthma. The children on the flight were not injured. Psychologists are working with the plane's passengers," the health department said in a statement.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Airbus A320 aircraft operated by Russian air carrier Ural Airlines made an emergency landing in a field. The airplane, which was en route from the Russian resort city of Sochi to Siberian city of Omsk, had 167 people, including six crew members and 23 children, on board. A representative of local emergency services told Sputnik that a failure of the aircraft's hydraulic system could be the cause of the incident.
