They were rushed to Larnaca General Hospital in ambulances that were standing by. Two remained in hospital overnight. One was a 60 year old male with back injuries and a female (50) who sustained a pelvic fracture.

There are no reports of passenger injuries, however some were treated for shock by the ambulance crew.
