A nurse says a teenager belived to be the only survivor of a Yemeni jetliner crash is "doing well" in a hospital in Comoros.
Said Mohammed, a nurse at El Mararouf hospital, said Wednesday doctors would release more on the girl's condition later Wednesday. Mohammed said he cared for the girl through the night.
The jetliner carrying 153 people crashed into the Indian Ocean on Tuesday as it attempted to land amid severe turbulence and howling winds.
Most of the passengers were from Comoros, a former French colony.
Sgt. Said Abdilai told Europe 1 radio that he rescued the girl after she was found bobbing in the water. She couldn't grasp the life ring rescuers threw to her, so Abdilai said he jumped into the sea.
