Condition of injured Chinese tourist in US improves

THE condition of a Chinese woman tourist critically injured in last week's tour bus crash in Arizona has improved, a spokesman of the hospital where she is receiving treatment said yesterday.

The condition of the 35-year-old woman from Shanghai has been upgraded from critical to serious, while that of another woman was still critical, said Rick Plummer, spokesman of the University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Two other crash victims, a 61-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman were still receiving treatment at the medical center, and both were in good condition, Plummer said.

He said the condition of the 48-year-old local bus driver was stable.

Two other injured Chinese tourists, an 18-year-old girl and a 57-year-old man, admitted to the Sunrise Hospital, were in fair condition.

A bus carrying 15 Chinese tourists, a driver and a tour guide crashed last Friday on a road near the Hoover Dam. Six tourists and the guide died. Nine tourists and the driver were injured.

The bus was on its way to Las Vegas after a one-day trip to the Grand Canyon in Arizona when the accident occurred.

The injured were sent to two hospitals in Las Vegas, about 100 km north of the crash site. Three tourists who suffered only minor injuries returned to China earlier this week.
