"The wife lives in a remote area, she doesn't have much access to telephone, but is asking her brother to call and check.
"He is still in the same condition and there is still no improvement.
"Doctors said he may come out of coma in two weeks. We are trying to convince his family that he will be fine, but they are adamant to speak to him.
"They are also asking us to send him back, but we can't as he is still in coma.
