I thought it looked too extreme with the original title and changed it that way.


Our thoughts and prayers are with Prince Johan Friso and the family!

A BBC article says he was resuscitated at the scene, so he either fell unconscious whilst buried or just before.

Thank you in advance.The rest of the group,including HM and the Prince of Orange were not hurt.Allthough not an official piste,it was cleared to ski.

It's awfull enough as it is.
Two day ago I posted the fact that Lech was not longer reachable by car because of avalanches and that by now in that area avalanches even reach prepaired downhill slopes. My question in the Queen Beatrix current events thread was if it wasn't better for the Dutch RF to get a flight out of Lech and return home?

So horrible to hear that in fact something happened to one of the fasmily members!

One seems to have to live in the Alps to know when they are really getting dangerous.... My best wishes to the Dutch RF.

The press conference is postponed till in about 15 minutes from now...

The Prince does have a fractured skull,more on his condition is difficult to say,it will take a few days more to have a clearer picture on his condition and many more tests are needed.

He is in a coma at present,probably sedated due to his condition and fighting for his life.

My heart and thoughts go out to Him,Princess Mabel and the children Zaria and Luana and ofcourse to Her Majesty.

Prince Johan Friso wore a beeper, enabling the rescuers to locate him so quickly.
The area covered by the avalanche was 30 X 40 metres.

He fell prey to the most common type of avalanches. A wind-avalanche. I.e. unstable snowdrifts formed by the wind.

He was still being resuscitated while on the way to the hospital in the helicopter.

He and his party went to the second highest slopes, where the avalanche warning was at level 4. There they went off-piste.

I'm sort of surprised the government is allowing WA to travel to Austria. I'm sure he wants to see his brother and support his family, but I would think his advisers would want to keep him safe on the ground in the Netherlands.

It's not like he is going on the slopes to ski kalnel, he's going to visit his brother in the hospital, where it's pretty safe.

According to reports, Friso is in a coma. I'm generally an optomistic person, but I'm not right now. Hope my vibes are incorrect.

What is very striking tho is the enormous outpoor of sympathy and affection towards the prince,HM and the entire RF at this difficult moment.Truly remarkeble,and not...we always stand with them be it in happy moments,or in grief and despair,but we are all united in hope for recovery.

They're on the KBX flight with WA and Máxima and their families at this very moment yes as the children are just off from school for the winter holidays since today.

Friso ofcourse lives in London with his family and the dutch school holidays do therefore not apply to him and his girls there.

What all are so afraid of is that he was without oxygen for almost ten minutes,and what effect that may have had on his bodily functions...Too awfull to contemplate.

Dear Friso,

stand up and fight for your life. I am sure, your father does not want to see you at his side, he want to see you in the circle of your family with your wife, your daughters, your mother and your brothers. It might be a hard struggle, but isn't it worthy?

With best wishes,

principessa
