Richard Bacon’s mother, Christine, has shared a welcome update on her son’s health, revealing that he is now out of a medically-induced coma.
The broadcaster had been placed into a coma after being taken ill on a flight from the US to the UK earlier this month.
Speaking to local news outlet the Mansfield Chad, Christine confirmed that Richard has now been brought out of sedation.
“He was having a lot of oxygen ventilation, a lot more than a normal person would need, through a pipe, as well as lot of antibiotics,” she told the paper. “They kept him like that for a week and we hadn’t left his side, at one point we really felt we might lose him.
