A Jet Airways passenger aircraft takes off from the airport in Ahmedabad August 12, 2013.

A Jet Airways manager said the flight attendant injured in the Belgium attacks is undergoing treatment for burns and has been placed in a medically induced coma.

Bernard Guisset, a Jet Airways manager in Brussels, said Nidhi Chaphekar has burns over 15 per cent of her body and has a fractured foot, but is out of danger.

The image of Chaphekar taken right after the blast was one of the most searing photographs taken Tuesday.

It showed the 40-year-old mother of two from Mumbai, her bright yellow uniform ripped across her chest. Her hair was caked with soot, and blood streaked down her face.

Meanwhile, Amit Motwani, a Jet Airways flight purser who was also injured in the airport blast, was being treated for injuries to his eye and ear.
