Is it cases of children born for example anencephalic or with other birth defects of the brain or children injured in accidents?

Read yesterday that the prosecution in Austria decided not to open a case against Florian Moosbrugger, as he did nothing that could be seen as being responsible for causing the avalanche. Both Friso and he knew what they risked and it was an accident. He was a victim as much as Friso.

http://vorarlberg.orf.at/news/stories/2555258/

The article claims that the family Moosbrugger and the Dutch Royals are even closer now than they were before and that queen Beatrix was convinced from the beginning that Herr Moosbrugger while he was invoilved, did nothing to hurt the prince.

Perhaps, that is why they continued life support. So, if Herr Moosbrugger was found guilty of any misdoing, it would not be a manslaughter type of charge.

I really hope not, that would be so hard on the family! I don't know a thing about brain and brain damage. Does anyone know if there is a reasonable chance he wakes up one day?

His injury, which is requiring a ventilator to breathe for Friso, is consistent with Brain Death. He was deprived of oxygen for nearly an hour. Irreversible brain damage starts at 6 minutes. He's not going to wake up.

I think Scooter is right. There must be some reason they have tortured themselves in this matter.

Thank you for this clear answer. A very sad story!

No idea why they'd know first though.

My apologies if I shouldn't even have posted, but I wanted to share. I imagine if this is the case, we'll know soon.
The dutch 'rijksvoorlichtingsdienst' has denied that prince Friso has passed away (initially they 'didnt confirm' now that has changed to 'denied') and maintains that news of PF's condition will be announced when there's a significant change in his condition..

Yup, my friend messaged me right after and let me know it has been declared a hoax. I deleted my original post.

Here is the story on the hoax if anyone is interested: Google Translate

What a terrible thing to print, if it is not true. Why would they do that?

I was under the impression that the announcement was via television, not a newspaper or magazine. Was this not the case?

All TV-stations with viewers that have an interest in the Dutch Royal family surely have their obituaries ready for transmission. It's not the first time something like this has happened. Human error, for sure.

National Geographic is a, fairly, decent publication, not prone to sensational stuff. Even, their TV Channel doesn't do the nonsense programing. Too bad this occurred. When it does happen, people will question the veracity.

Since we do not know the Prince's exact medical condition, there may be something, maybe minor brain activity, that is giving the family hope or keeping them from making any final decision.

People cling to hope - sometime that is all we have.

Nor do we know the family's views on when a person is to be considered dead, if they accept brain death or if they believe that a person is dead first when the heart stops beating. Just because a country has laws accepting brain death doesn't mean that everyone in that country thinks it's ok with "pulling the plug" when a person is brain dead.
