How is Daniel André Tande, who fell so badly on Thursday? Even two days after the accident, this question still dominates what is happening at the ski jumping circus in Planica.
The Norwegian was in an artificial coma in the University Hospital of Ljubljana. Because the body functions are stable and he is responding well to the treatment, he should be slowly woken up from the coma over the course of Saturday. “Everything is going as planned,” said team doctor Guri Ranum Ekas on Saturday morning in a message from the ski association.
The Norwegian sports director Clas Brede Braathen was with Tande in the hospital and is also optimistic. “It looks very promising,” he says on ZDF. However, he also warns: “Before we are quite sure when he wakes up, we are of course a little afraid. »
Tande fell violently in the trial run while ski flying in Planica, Slovenia. A broken collarbone and light puncture of the lungs were diagnosed. His national coach Alexander Stöckl said that, as things stand at the moment, Tande will not suffer any long-term damage.
