Bas Vaessen update – improvement

Bas Vaessen’s family have given a cautiously optimistic update with Bas improving slightly after his crash at Culham. The Dutchman is out of the high intensive care unit he was in following the crash on Sunday, and has been moved to medium intensive care but it is still a long road ahead for the poor Dutchman.

The statement reads: “Bas is stable at the moment and that’s why he’s transferred from the high intensive care unit to the medium intensive care.At the moment we are really happy with the small improvements, like moving his toes and hand a little bit. He can eat somewhat and has a stable blood pressure.We have a long way to go and we remain positive.”
