Spain's Horrillo out of medically-induced coma

Latest update : 2009-05-17

Rabobank rider Pedro Horrillo Munoz has come out of his medically-induced coma, according to Tour of Italy organisers. The Spaniard had crashed and fallen down a 60-metre-deep ravine during the Giro d'Italia on Saturday.

REUTERS - Spain's Pedro Horrillo Munoz, who fell down a ravine during the Giro d'Italia on Saturday, is out of an induced coma and has moved his limbs, organisers said on Sunday.

The Rabobank rider crashed into a barrier during the eighth stage and fell some 60 metres. He had to be winched into a helicopter, which took him to a Bergamo hospital.

His condition remains serious, with broken bones and head trauma, but doctors hope he can make a full recovery.
