OFFICIAL VOICE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CUBA CENTRAL COMMITTEE

With profound grief we inform that at 1:45 a.m. this May 25, patient Emiley Sánchez De la O, aged 40, a native of Holguín, who was hospitalized in the Intensive Care Unit of the General Calixto García University Hospital, passed away as a result of the severe traumatic injuries and burns suffered in the plane crash that occurred last Friday, May 18.

As our people had been informed, her condition was extremely critical with an unfavorable prognosis, maintaining a progressive deterioration, which it was not possible to reverse due to further complications, despite the efforts of the multidisciplinary team in charge of attending to her during six days of intensive care.

Our deepest condolences to her family and friends.
