Half a meter may not sound like much, but it's enough to suffocate you, by blocking you nose and mouth, especially if you are knocked unconsious.
The weight of snow can also restrict your breathing, simply due to the pressure on your ribcage, even if consious.
You try bury yourself under half a meter of snow, and you'll discover how difficult it is to breathe. Especially if it's wet snow.
I stand corrected!

Perhaps when we go into a new page of the thread, someone could post the latest information and the time it was posted at in the first post of the new page? That way someone who has just come into the thread after hearing the news for the first time or looking for an update after waking up the next day doesn't have to go searching back for information.

Just an idea.

There is no new information at present other then what was said earlyer in the evening and that is that it will take at least 4 days before a proper diagnosis can & will be given.Meanwhile the brothers of Friso and their families have arrived in Lech as has HM and the Princess Mabel to be with their children Luana and Zaria during the night but will be back at the hospital first thing tomorrow morning as will all senior dutch Royals.

Their won't be any more statements other then one tomorrow morning on how the Princes condition was overnight and the same repeated again and again as the real prognosis follows after 3 to four days,unfortunately.

This also is extremely stressfull and traumatic almost to Princess Mabel as her father fell through the ice here one winter while skating and drowned.

The reaction on the Royal House website stating that a prognoses can only be given within a few days and that his condition is stabile but still life treatening.

Perhaps if you had read the previous messages you would have known these pictures had already been posted.

I hope the Prince makes as quick a recovery as possible, it must be a terrible time for the family!

I've used it already. Far better than stirring things up even more.
I had absolutely no idea that was what the ! was for. Good to know.

As far as the Prince, I'm very concerned about hypoxia and brain damage for him.

Scooter, would the fact that he was surround by the snow thereby possibly causing his core body temperature to go down, even just a few degrees, help where the hypoxia is concerned?

The Prince, his wife and whole family are in my thoughts and prayers. I can't even begin to imagine what they are all going through.

I guess we will all have to be patient now and wait several days for more of a prognosis from the doctors. When they know something we will hear about it. He is in the best of hands for sure. It will be a horrible wait for the family.

Just awful! My thoughts are with HM, Princess Mabel and the rest of the family.

According to the NOS HM and Princess Mabel are rumoured to have left the hospital to join the rest of the family in Lech. But they stress that it is a rumour.
Accordigng to a specialist of the AMC the prince is probably (and most people with simular accidents) is kept in an artificial coma. After a few days they will stop the medecines and see if the patient will wake up on his own.
'Prins Friso wordt in coma gehouden' - Prins Johan Friso bedolven onder lawine - VK
The specialist (Ruud Koster) continues that for the first days/weeks after waking up the patients are seem blurry and it will take a longer period before you can say something sensible about the future.

'Report Post' function

For those members who aren't familiar with the 'Report Post' function, clicking on the black ! in the red triangle [see thumbnail below for its location] and typing in some details alerts the moderation team to a possible problem in a thread. It is more immediate and effective than a PM because the Forum software automatically creates a post in the Moderator's forum where all staff who are online can see it and respond accordingly.

The Report Post function should be used to report spam, obscene, offensive, abusive or overly-aggressive posts and other questionable material which violates the Forum rules.

report and photos of Willem-Alexander and Maxima arriving in Lech

The dutch tv gives information regularly but it's in dutch. Maybe our friends on the forum can make updates when this is important?

No new bulletins this morning on the health of the Prince,as was already said and expected yesterday.His condition has not changed overnight.

What did happen,a detail but if confirmed a happy detail,is that the Prince probably does not have a fractured skull.It happens that Claudius Thom,one of Friso's doctors spoke with dutch lady Jannetje Koelewijn who happened to be at the hospital and who's husband is a neuro-surgeon there.Jannetje Koelewijn happens to be a editor of dutch NRC paper.

According to this the Prince has not suffered other injuries or anything other then being without oxygen for 20 minutes.Resuscitation took quite a while and Friso's body temperature was 32 celsius,which in this case is "good" as with a lower temp the body uses less oxygen so that might be favorable.

Please keep Friso,Princess Mabel and Luana and Zaria,as well as Her Majesty and the entire RF in your thoughts and prayers for days to come.

The NOS site also mentions that HM Queen Noor of Jordan has send a message to Princess Mabel saying;" I think of you and pray for your whole family" .The Hashemite House of Jordan and the Dutch Royal Family are very dear and close friends.


I 'm sure we will not hear anything else but the simular we already had and that is we all.most of all the RF,will have to watch and wait untill a few days from now when a complete and proper diagnosis can be given.
