The two children who were seriously injured in an accident with a Serbian bus on the Trakia highway in Bulgaria remain in Children's Intensive Care of the Pirogov Hospital. According to the director of the hospital, Dr. Valentin Dimitrov, they spent the night relatively calm. One of the children is awaiting highly specialized tests for a final diagnosis. The other child, who has already undergone surgery, is facing another major operation because of fractures in his pelvis. There is no direct danger to the lives of the two children, but their condition remains serious.

Yesterday, the director of the hospital met with relatives of the injured children and with the interim head of the Serbian embassy, Slavica Panic, to inform them about the treatment.
