THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Thirteen fishermen who survived the waves in the aftermath of the cyclonic storm Ockhi and were admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital here, were discharged on Wednesday.

The fishermen have been identified as Marcilin (56), Simon (45), Mariya John (56), Johnson (29), Susaipakiam (59) and Deshi Devoos (31) from Poonthura, Edmund (50) from Pozhiyoor, Zyrus (51) and Bosco (48) from Poovaar, Bijudas (30), Benziyar (51), Jose (48) and Clarence (57) from Adimalathura.

Michael (42) from Poonthura, who is undergoing treatment at the trauma care ICU, is still in a serious condition.

He is currently being given ventilator support. Wilfred (48) from Pulluvila has been shifted from the orthopaedic ICU to the ward, following an improvement in his health condition.

According to the doctors at the hospital, the rest of the fishermen admitted here are in a stable state.

On Wednesday, one more fisherman was admitted to the hospital.

Francis (31) from Pozhiyoor had gone for fishing a few days back and got caught in the high waves. He was rescued by a team and taken to Kochi, from where he was shifted to the Medical College Hospital here. Including him, there are 22 fishermen currently undergoing treatment at the Hospital.

The body of Joseph Kuria (55), who was brought dead to the Hospital, was handed over to his relatives in the morning.

The body was being kept in the mortuary for the past few days, as there was no way to identify the person.

It was following a DNA test that the identity was ascertained.

Nine more bodies are yet to be identified.

Two of these bodies are being kept in the Medical College mortuary, four at the Sree Chithra Institute mortuary and three at the General Hospital mortuary.
