Helio Hermito Zampier Neto, a surviving member of the Chapecoense soccer team that was involved in the November 28th plane crash, recently awoke from a coma this past weekend with no memory of what happened.
According to ABC News, the team’s doctor, Edson Stakonski, said that upon regaining consciousness, Neto asked about the outcome of the soccer tournament and why he was unable to play in the game.
Doctors and psychologist have made the decision to keep the information of the crash from Neto until he is in a more stable condition.
Alan Ruschel and Jackson Follmann, two additional surviving team members have headed back to Brazil, however, Neto’s condition prevented him from leaving the San Vicente Foundation Hospital.
Chapecoense are scheduled to play their first official match since the plane crash in January.
CONMEBOL, the South American football governing body, announced that the Brazilian side are scheduled to face Internacional de Lages in the Campeonato Catarinense, their local state competition, on January 29.
