The first of the three survivors of last month's plane crash at Vnukovo Airport was released from the hospital Monday.

Kristina Baranova, 26, was a flight attendant on the Tu-204, which crashed when the pilot lost control during a Dec. 29 landing. The aircraft crashed at the edge of the airport, scattering debris across the nearby highway.

Four crew members, including the pilots, were killed, and a fifth person died the following day. The other two survivors, Dmitry Vinokurov, 24, and Alexei Izosimov, 32, remain in the hospital, Interfax reported.
