2 New Victims of Falling Icicles Reported in Bulgaria's Capital.

A mother, N.P., 31, and her baby boy have become the next victims of deadly icicles in the Bulgarian capital Sofia.

They were hit by an ice piece Saturday morning, which had fallen on them in the very heart of the city a on "Karnigradska" street in downtown Sofia.

The two were taken to the emergency hospital "Pirogov," where doctors established that the baby was unharmed while the mother refused medical help. They have been already released.

The condition of G.I., 38, from the Black Sea city of Varna, who was listed in "Pirogov" at the beginning of the week, with injuries causes by a fallen icicle, remains critical. Doctors said Saturday they have noticed a slight stabilization, but are still fighting for his life.

The man suffered a broken skull, contusion and bleeding in the brain. After he was listed in the hospital, an emergency team of neurosurgeons, led by Nikolay Gabrovski, performed surgery on him.
