Caught in conflict - Сritically ill baby stuck in Ukraine

  


For days, amid fierce fighting, a seriously ill 8-month-old Zhenya was awaiting evacuation from a children’s hospital in Slavyansk, eastern Ukraine, which has repeatedly been shelled by Kiev’s military jets.

During intense fighting in the city, other children in the hospital were taken down to the cellar. But -month-old Yevgeny Yezekyanhad to remain in the ICU, so he was “covered by mattresses” to save him from shell fragments, Natalia, a local resident who knows the boy’s mother, told.

All other patients had been evacuated to safer places and only a few medical personnel taking care of Yevgeny and the boy’s parents remained in the hospital.

The child has spinal [muscular] atrophy, or Werdnig-Hoffmann disease. He continues to be on artificial pulmonary ventilation. The condition is serious but stable,” the boy’s doctor, Vladimir, told.
