Russia: Youngest survivor of Volgograd attack shows signs of recovery

Vika Tolkunova, the three-month-old baby who has been in an induced coma and under intensive care following the Volgograd trolleybus bombing December 30, is showing signs of recovery it was confirmed on Tuesday.

The infant is no longer in a coma and can take some breaths by herself, yet it is not known how long it will take her to fully recover.

The baby's father, Vasily Tolkunov, says: "Doctors give no prognosis, but they say that they have been able to stabilise her."

Vika was en route to hospital before the attack happened and her mother and grandmother accompanying her died in the bombing. The infant survived thanks to the thick blanket she was wrapped in, saving her from life-threatening burns.

Russian Public Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova visited the three-month-old blast survivor on Tuesday, citing the baby's recovery as very good news.
