Nor can I. I hope they will not keep him 'alive' in that state for much longer. People do not recover from hypoxic brain injury.

I actually think it's a reasonable question as the family's choice to have Friso kept on life support while profoundly brain damaged could run to millions, depending on how long this continues.

If there is, in fact, no chance of recovery, then I would think that the Netherlands has the right way of it. I wouldn't want to be kept alive like that.

Yes, hypoxic brain injury is the real concern. 20 minutes without oxygen to the brain (and other organs) is very bad. Though because his body was in a very cold environment, that may help.
