NEW DELHI: Following reports that Nidhi Chaphekar, the Jet Airways staffer from Mumbai had been placed in a “medically-induced coma” after she was injured in the Brussels attack, the Airlines on Friday refuted the statement saying that she is stable and is under sedation.
“We have spoken to Dr. Steve at the hospital where jet airways crew Nidhi Chapekar is under treatment. The Doctor has confirmed that Nidhi is in a stable condition and not in Coma. She is resting and under sedation for her comfort,” Jet Airways said in a statement.
Chapekar, who suffered burns and fractured her foot in the explosions on Tuesday, is receiving treatment at a hospital near Brussels.
A picture of Nidhi went viral after the attack, where she is seen sitting on a chair inside the airport in a state of horror and shock as her yellow uniform coat is ripped and her hair and face are covered in soot and blood.
Meanwhile, Jet managed to fly out the stranded Indian passengers in Brussels who returned in Delhi and Mumbai today, while some other passengers left for Newark from Amsterdam.
