Two weeks ago Prince Johan Friso, the second son of our Queen, got a terrible accident due to an avalanche. He was buried for more than 20 minutes under a thick layer of snow while he was skiing in the neighbourhood of Lech, Austria, and then resuscitated for 50 minutes, which is too long and normally not done.He suffered massive brain damage. He will probably never regain conciousness. Our thoughts are with the royal family. Queen Beatrix was still in Lech and Friso's wife Mabel and two little daughters too. The Queen and Mabel visited him daily. Today we heard the news that the prince has been taken to a special hospital in London, where he and his family live.
