“Rico’s wife has revealed that he has come out of a coma after three weeks,” Britain’s The Sun reported on Sept. 19 (KST). According to the media, Rico is now able to recognize people around him and carry on conversations with simple gestures.
It’s a miraculous recovery. Rico, who plays goalkeeper for French giants PSG, fell off his horse while traveling with his family to a fair in El Rocio, part of Spain’s Andalusia region, on March 28, the day before the last game of the season.
After hitting his head on the ground, Rico was also struck by the horse’s leg and suffered injuries so severe that he had to be airlifted to hospital by helicopter. He underwent skull trauma and a feeding tube, and never regained consciousness and went into a coma.
At the time, Sky Sports in the U.K. detailed the incident, saying, “Rico fell off his horse while traveling to the fair, and the excited horse charged and kicked him in the head with its leg.”
“We would like to thank everyone for their love, support and concern for Rico’s condition,” said his wife and family, adding, “Rico is receiving treatment and is fighting for his recovery. The next 48 hours are critical.”
PSG teammates wore Rico’s jersey to the final league game against Clermont in his honor. Fans also wished Rico a speedy recovery by hanging a large banner with his jersey in the stands.
Kylian Mbappe held up Rico’s jersey after scoring against Clermont to wish his teammate a speedy recovery, and the Spanish La Liga, where Rico played before joining PSG, also sent him messages of support.
But Rico showed no signs of waking up. As his coma lengthened, Rico’s wife posted on social media, “Don’t leave me alone. I can’t live without you. I’m waiting for you. I love you so much,” breaking many hearts.
After three weeks, Rico miraculously opened his eyes and returned to his family safely 안전놀이터순위.
