Skier Daniel Albrecht Out of Coma

After he crashed in training January’s Kitzbuehel World Cup races, Swiss skier Daniel Albrecht was put into a medically induced coma. The Swiss Ski Federation, however, has reported that Albrecht has been woken from his three-week long coma. His status has certainly improved, as the doctors at Innsbruck’s University Hospital have removed his respiration tube. 

Johannes Schwamberger, who is the hospital spokesman, said that Albrecht is awake, but is not yet speaking and it is too soon to tell if he is aware of his situation. 

Innsbruck’s University hospital will hold a press conferance on Friday (2/13/2009), where they will give further details on his condition. 

Here is the video footage of his accident:
