Indian air stewardess in iconic Brussels airport bomb photograph is in a COMA after suffering burns to 15 per cent of her body and a shattered foot.

The Indian flight attendant who was pictured in the moments after the Brussels airport bombings on Tuesday is now in stable condition and recovering.

Nidhi Chaphekar, 40, suffered burns over 15 per cent of her body and fractured her foot in the explosions on Tuesday, and is being treated at a hospital near Brussels.

The air stewardess from Mumbai was initially reported as being placed in a medically induced coma, but is now out of danger.

 'The doctor has confirmed that Nidhi is in stable condition and not in coma,' Jet Airways said in a statement on Friday morning.

'She is resting and under sedation for her comfort.'

The photograph of Ms Chaphekar lying injured at the airport would later become the defining image of the Brussels terror attacks on Tuesday morning.

It showed the mother-of-two sat on a bench in the moments after the blast, her bright yellow uniform ripped across her chest. Her hair was caked with soot, and blood streaked down her face.

Like many of the people injured at the check-in, Ms Chaphekar had just arrived at the terminal ahead of meeting up with her colleagues for a flight to Newark, US, when a series of explosions tore through the building, killing and maiming dozens of people.

 Ms Chapekar was one of two Indian cabin crew members flying with Jet Airways and had been working for the airline for the past 15 years.

Her photograph rapidly gained attention on social media, with #PrayForNidhi trending on social media.

'She was waiting to board a flight from Brussels to Newark at 10.15am local time. She is a cabin crew member. We don't have full information on the extent of her injuries,' Jet Airways said of her situation.

'We know her location - she is in hospital and receiving medical care,' they confirmed.

Ms Chaphekar's husband,who flew from Mumbai to Paris and traveled by road to Brussels,is at the hospital with her.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
