Sole Mine Disaster Survivor Waking from Coma

 

Randal McCloy Jr. is breathing without mechanical support and is responsive to his family. "We consider him, probably best described, in a light coma." Said the hospital neurosurgeon. McCloy is "opening his eyes, he has purposeful movement..."

McCloy was taken from the mine disaster 41 hours after the Jan. 2 explosion, which immediately killed one miner. The remaining miners all died due to carbon monoxide poisoning. McCloy is expected to have brain damage from the carbon monoxide.

His heart and liver functions are recovering but his kidneys are in a serious state. The mine owners say the gases are being vented from the mine but do not know when it will be safe to investigate.
