Alexander Dodds, the vice president of TNK-BP, has fractured his skull after falling down the stairs while exiting a plane at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport, Life News reports.Life News reports that Dodds “tripped and tumbled head over heels on the stairs”.
A later report from Life News suggested that Dodds fall was the result of excessive drunkenness.
“Alexander drank Beluga [vodka] almost all three hours of the flight, while not eating anything with it even once,” one stewardess told the news org (via Moscow Times).
The stewardess admits that the staff did not try to stop them, and she has since contacted her airline to suggest they limit the amount of alcohol served.
The Daily Mail reports that Dodds has since been transferred to a clinic in Berlin. He had been born in Scotland and only joined the Russian wing of BP four months ago.
