Update: 11 year old Russian girl doing better

An 11 year old Russian girl who is in Cyprus on holidays and was taken to Makarios Hospital in Nicosia with head injuries is doing well but remains in hospital for preventive reasons, doctors said on Sunday.

The girl was taken to Larnaca hospital late on Saturday night with head injuries. Her mother said the girl was standing on the bed in her hotel room getting dressed when she lost her balance, fell from the bed and hurt herself.

Doctors at Larnaca Hospital ruled the injury was critical and she was transferred to Makarios Hospital where she was initially put on a ventilator.

Police was notified and are investigating. The girl was to be examined by a pathologist to determine the conditions of her injury.
