Kai Reus has left the hospital in Amsterdam after only a short stay and will now continue his recovery at home, Team Rabobank has announced. The 22-year-old had been placed in an induced coma following a training crash in France.
In that accident, Reus suffered a broken collarbone and three broken ribs, as well as a brain haemorrhage. Doctors at the hospital in Grenoble, France, held him in an induced coma until last weekend. After he was awakened, he was flown home to the Netherlands.
Reus will now continue his recovery at his parents' home in Winkel. His recuperation is expected to take a long time, and the team said on its website, rabobank.nl, that he will have all the time that he needs. At the moment he is still very tired and emotional. He is expected to suffer no permanent damage.
