MOSCOW. Aug 15 (Interfax) - Only one woman was hospitalized after a passenger plane crash-landed in the Moscow region on Thursday, while 22 injured patients received aid as outpatients, the Russian Health Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

"All passengers brought in by paramedics have been examined by doctors of the Ramenskoye Central District Hospital. Twenty-two persons received aid as outpatients, and only one, a 69-year-old woman, was admitted to hospital," the statement said.

The woman's condition "is not life-threatening; it's moderately serious, practically fair," it said.

Two ambulance vehicles are on standby in the Zhukovsky Airport, the ministry said.

The Ural Airlines plane collided with a flock of birds after taking off from the Zhukovsky Airport on Thursday morning and made an emergency landing on a field near the runway.
