This is a terrible tragedy for the Prince and his family.

I cannot help but wonder if he will become the focus of the euthanasia debate in the Netherlands. The Dutch royal family is very wealthy, and can afford the best possible care for him indefinitely.

Yes, interesting that this should happen to a member of the Dutch royals, of all countries. It would be expected of a commoner that the plug gets pulled. We'll see.

Read the article and it seems his wife had ties to the Dutch underworld.

Wouldn't surprise me if this was not an accident.

The prognosis for Ischemic brain injuries like this is poor. The only ray of hope may be that his head was kept cold. Freezing is often used as a treatment option for these kind of brain injuries. It makes the chance of recovery a bit higher.

Last year, my one-year old grandson went into cardiac arrest and was without oxygen for over 20 minutes. As a result, he is in a permanent vegetative state. He is still in the hospital. He will be two this April.

Anyhow, hope the Prince is able to have a meaningful recovery.

A friend and co-worker was killed in a skiing accident this past Sunday. Fell and hit his head the base of a lift tower. And he was a professional ski instructor.
