Waking up from the coma! – Star Figaro Winkler fights his way back to life
Hope for the favorite Figaro of Viennese high society! Josef Winkler (53), bravely fighting his way back to life, has already woken up from the coma. “Josef looked at me and recognized me,” says his wife Karin (60) overjoyed.
It’s too early to give the all-clear – but it’s still very good news from the star Figaro, who fell in the night from August 6th to 7th at Schwedenplatz in Vienna, suffering serious head injuries and several brain hemorrhages.
Permanent damage still uncertain
After his fall at Schwedenplatz in Vienna, Josef Winkler was in a coma for ten days in the intensive care unit of the AKH. Now even artificial respiration could be stopped. Winkler breathes independently. According to doctors, he should remain in intensive care for about a week. It will only be seen in a few days whether the hairdresser of the celebrities has suffered permanent damage.
