Deftones Bassist Chi Cheng is continuing to show signs of recovery from the nearly fatal car accident he was involved in back in 2008. Although he is still mostly unable to speak or move, his recent signs of awareness and movement are giving doctors hope that he might soon emerge from his comatose state. More details after the jump.
As we reported in a previous story, Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has been in a coma since 2008 when he got in a car accident. Although Chi was recently diagnosed with pneumonia, he has been slowly showing signs of improvement. According to Blabbermouth, doctors plan to start weaning Chi off his breathing machine on June 18 because of his slow signs of recovery. Though the process has been slow, fans might hope that the Deftones bassist will emerge from his comatose state at some point in the future.
Much of Chi’s recovery is indebted to benefit shows put on by the Deftones and donations by fans. Head to the One Love for Chi website to make a donation.
