Bernal after accident: “I almost lost my life”

In a dramatic tweet, the former Tour DE-France winner Began Vernal has first expressed itself after his heavy training accident in his home Colombia and several operations. “After I had a 95 percent chance to be paralyzed cross-section and had lost almost my life because I did that, what I love most, I would like to have today with God, clinic, all your specialists who have made the impossible, My family and all thank you, “Vernal wrote on Friday on Twitter.

In a publication on Instagram also the first photo Bernays from the clinic with creak and hoses could be seen. He should be operated again on Friday. This had emerged from the now seventh communication of the University Hospital La Sabina near Bogotá.

Two operations on Friday

“The patient is at this moment in a period of recovery or tertiary traumas,” it said in the message that had already pointed to the critical situation. “For this reason, he will undergo two operations tomorrow (Friday), which are secondary interventions that are not life-threatening.” These are the operational treatment of a break of the medium hand bone of the right hand and fractions in the toothed and pine area.
