Australia: Parents of football player in coma share footage of their son

The parents of a footballer who went into a coma after being punched in Australia have released new footage of him ahead of his attacker’s appearance in court this week.

Bedridden Danny Hodgson can be seen hooked to hospital machinery while clutching a stress ball in the video, as his family gently pats his arms and legs.

The 26-year-old suffered a skull fracture and brain hemorrhage after a single punch at Perth train station on September 5 last year.

Doctors then put the former Carlisle United youngster, from Cleaton Moor in Cumbria, into a medically induced coma as they struggled to treat brain bleeding and blood clots.

His parents Nicola and Peter flew to his side during the intervening months and asked the public to “pray” and send “positive thoughts” for his recovery.

And more than six months later, new footage confirms that he is making steady progress following the gruesome, unprovoked attack.

Nicola had earlier praised the doctors treating her son at the Royal Perth Hospital before he moved on to the next stage of rehabilitation.

She said: “Despite his considerable injuries, Danny spent every minute of those 82 days in Royal Perth fighting.

“He never gave up and the ICU doctors nicknamed him ‘Iron Man’.

“We are eternally grateful to the medical staff in the ICU and Trauma Unit for helping to save Danny.”

In January, surgeons also performed a particularly risky operation to reattach part of his skull, which was removed last year to relieve pressure on his brain.

But mother later confirmed, to her relief, that it had worked.

Danny moved to Australia when he was 18, where he played for the Western Australian National Premier League side ECU Joondalup.

He was out with his teammates before the incident, celebrating a successful end of the season.

But at around 2 a.m. on September 5, he was punched in the head by a 17-year-old boy for legal reasons.

Australian police then arrested the boy and charged him with heavy batteries.

The unnamed boy will appear in court this week.

Danny’s parents have previously confirmed that their son’s extensive recovery period will involve the boy learning to consume food and talk again.

They said: “He has to learn to swallow, drink, eat and finally talk again and that is just the beginning.

“His physical recovery will be exhausting, and we know that for every small step forward there can be setbacks.

“But we believe in Danny’s strong spirit and with the support of his amazing girlfriend Jess, family and friends, we know he can slowly and carefully move forward. prior to.”
