November 21, 2017

ATHENS – There are early signs of improvement in the condition of a woman seriously injured during clashes between rioters and police in Athens last week, Evangelismos Hospital announced on Tuesday.

“The 55-year-old woman injured in the leg by a flare last Friday is haemodynamically stable but remains intubated and is still breathing with mechanical support. It is noted that there is a stabilisation in the patient’s condition, with signs of initial improvement,” a hospital announcement said.

The woman, a lawyer, underwent lengthy surgery to remove a naval flare shot off by anti-establishment protestors, which became lodged in her leg. The incident occurred in Athens’ Exarchia district, during clashes with police following the annual protest march held on November 17 to commemorate the 1973 Athens Polytechnic Uprising.
