BRUSSELS -- A Jet Airways manager said that the flight attendant injured in the Belgium attacks was undergoing treatment for burns and in under sedation for her comfort.
"We have spoken to Dr. Steven at the hospital where Jet Airways crew Nidhi Chaphekar is under treatment. The doctor has confirmed that Nidhi is in a stable condition and not in a coma," according to the statement issued Friday. "She is resting and under sedation for her comfort."
Earlier, Bernard Guisset, a Jet Airways manager in Brussels, said Nidhi Chaphekar had suffered burns over 15 per cent of her body and had fractured her foot. But he added that her condition was stable and out of danger.
The image of Chaphekar taken right after the blast was one of the most searing photographs taken Tuesday.
It showed the 40-year-old mother of two from Mumbai, her bright yellow uniform ripped across her chest. Her hair was caked with soot, and blood streaked down her face.
Meanwhile, Amit Motwani, a Jet Airways flight purser who was also injured in the airport blast, was being treated for injuries to his eye and ear.
