Chi Cheng (Deftones) Able to Lift His Legs as He Emerges from Coma

Posted by - 10:55 AM on 02/08/12
Chi Cheng (Deftones) can now lift his legs on request. Cheng was injured in a car accident in 2008 which left him comatose and required surgery to remove portions of his brain. Seven months after the accident, he was no longer on life support, and two years later, he began to emerge from his coma in short intervals.

Still got a long road ahead but it's phenomenal that he's made it this far. I wish him nothing but the best in his continued recovery.

Amazing. Not a Deftones fan in the least, but this thread needs a billion positive responses to account for all the shit in the past day.
