I'm out... I can't keep reading this... it's just too much...


Yeah, I'm about to head home for the day. This has just been too much for me. I can't think of anything else, I keep getting misty eyed.....

I feel sick, to be honest.

It has earlier been reported that Alexander Galimov has died from his burns in the hospital.

The News Channel "Russia Today" just reported that doctors cant confirm that Alexander has died. So there is still hope that at least he may survive this tragedy.

Fight Alex!

Just absolutely awful news, what an unbelievable off-season this has been. My prayers are with the families involved couldn't imagine what they're going through.

If it's true that he has 80% of his body burned, you don't want him to live.

*nod* Neurologists have said that the prognosis for him, even if he survived surgery, was very grim.

That's what I was thinking. It sounds harsh, but life won't be good for him if he survives.

80% burns is grim to say the least. Possible, but just barely.

In children, there are cases of 100% burns where the child survived. I'm not giving up hope.

@dchesnokov Dmitry Chesnokov
The updated list of the dead in the crash now includes Ruslan Salei.


This is now easily the worst off-season in hockey history.

Salei has been confirmed on the plane and deceased.

Lots of reports Galimov passed away - nothing confirmed.

And this doozy:

@SlavaMalamud Slava Malamud
The crashed plane was forbidden to use the European Union airspace, deemed too unsafe by the European Air Safety Commission.

- it looks like the KHL may be going through another severe s*** storm for skimping on expenses, like what happened when Cherepanov died. I've read that 8 of the 90 or so of these type of planes have been involved in crashes already.

Crash scene photos

Note- although this was on Yahoo, the pictures are very grim and include the body of a victim.

I read there were 178 of them total, 8 being involved in crashed.

Today. Sucks.

@SlavaMalamud- Galimov's doc: "Burns on 90% of body, including respiratory system. Lots of internal injuries... Condition -- beyond critical". FIGHT, KID!

Story Says Salei was not on plane went on a earlier flight

This back and forth reporting is seriously making what was already a horrible tragedy into something even more unbearable.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

It all could have been avoided with a plane that was safe. I cannot believe it was deemed unsafe by the European Air Union.

If that is true it is tragic news, I was hoping this wasn't a KHL money skimping thing and it was.

I'm out, that is too much to handle...

Honestly, it's being reported every site I look. The Russian Ministry of something is who originally confirmed it and added his name to the list.
