Dutch Prince Friso may never regain consciousness: Doctors

INNSBRUCK, Austria (AFP) - Dutch Prince Johan Friso, the second son of Queen Beatrix, might never regain consciousness following a serious avalanche accident in Austria, his doctors announced on Friday. 'It can't be said with certainty at this point whether Prince Friso will ever regain consciousness again,' Wolfgang Koller, head of the trauma unit at Innsbruck University Hospital, told a press conference. 'In any case, a neurological rehabilition will be required that will take months, if not years.' The 43-year-old Dutch royal was caught in an avalanche while skiing off-piste with a friend in the posh Austrian ski resort of Lech a week ago. He was quickly evacuated by helicopter to Innsbruck University Hospital but nevertheless spent some 20 minutes under the snow, according to various reports.
