JONTY Evans is beginning to show early signs in regaining consciousness but remains in a very serious condition with an indefinite recovery time, his family revealed in a statement today (Wednesday).
The Olympic event rider suffered a significant brain injury after a fall from Cooley Rorkes Drift at Tattersalls International Horse Trials in Co Meath on June 3rd.
The statement read: “Jonty remains in a very serious but stable condition and has recently shown some early signs of progress in regaining consciousness. However, he remains very seriously ill having suffered a significant brain injury in his fall and any recovery will take an indefinite period of time.
“Jonty continues to receive expert medical treatment and rehabilitation from the staff at the Connolly Hospital. We are especially grateful to the nursing teams for all their wonderful care and treatment. We are also, very grateful for the support Jonty has received from the David Foster Injured Riders Fund.”
They once again thanked well-wishers for their kind thoughts and requested that rather than send flowers or cards, donations to the David Foster Injured Riders Fund would be welcomed.
