TV Report On Former Decapitated Singer Posted

A Polish TV report was recently posted about former Decapitated singer Adrian "Covan" Kowanek's medical condition. On October 29, 2007, Decapitated's tour van crashed while on tour in Russia, which left drummer Witek dead and Covan severely injured (See Metal Underground's report here and here).

After a reportedly "successful" neo-surgical procedure, a 36 hour pharmacological coma ended with Covan suffering a cardiac arrest and defused cerebral hypoxia due to medical negligence. Covan returned home after another six months of treatment in October 2008. Since then, Covan has made vast improvements, but still is unable to communicate and care for himself and requires 24 hour care.

The following TV report is in Polish, but English subtitles are available by clicking the "CC" button below the video's progress bar: More...
