Injured Dutch prince may not regain consciousness

Doctor Wolfgang Koller said Feb. 24 that it took nearly 50 minutes to reanimate Prince Johan Friso. MRI scans have showed his brain suffered "massive damage" in the avalanche in Lech on Feb. 17. The 43-year-old prince will be moved at a later date to a private clinic for further treatment but it may take years before he awakens, if ever.
