Max Biaggi Will Have to Stay in the ICU for Another Week

Max Biaggi will have to stay one more week in the ICU of San Camilo Hospital in Rome. Although his father Pietro had advanced the possibility of his son abandoning the intensive care unit during this week, doctors who attend the four-times 250 cc world champion have ensured that Biaggi will remain at least another week in the UCI before climbing the plant.

The Roman rider entered the Hospital San Camilo on 9 June as a result of a heavy crash while practicing Supermotard in the Circuit Internazionale di Latina, known as Il Sagittario, a track located in the Lazio region. Since then, the 45-year-old has recovered from the multiple injuries he suffered in that accident: eleven fractured ribs, a broken collarbone and a strong pneumothorax that forced doctors to place a thoracic drain near the left lung.

On Tuesday afternoon, Max Biaggi was again undergoing surgery so that the doctors could release a part of his right lung, which had been pinched by two fractured ribs, preventing Max to breathe normally.

Although his forecast is reserved, the family of the Roman rider has confirmed that his mood is good and that day by day is getting better.
