Chi Cheng, Deftones Bassist, Showing Signs of Emerging From Three Year Coma
Now, three years and two months later, Cheng is finally showing signs of recovery and even responding to commands as he's starting to emerge from his state of coma.
CraveOnline.com is reporting that Cheng is now able to move his leg and vocalize "through basic sounds" upon command--and there's even video of his amazing progress. Check it out after the jump.
It's important to note the persistent support of Cheng's family, friends and fans throughout this tragic ordeal. Cheng's family insurance halted coverage in the beginning stages of treatment and so the Deftones, along with several other bands and musicians, held several benefits to help foot the medical bill.
