Trigilli Claimed That von Moger Has Spinal Injuries But No Brain Damage
In the video, Trigilli revealed that von Moger was still in the hospital. He said he was in the “recovery phase” was was kept “in a coma for so long” because of concern over head and brain trauma that caused built-up fluids.
There were questions about whether von Moger would have long-term, permanent damage as a result, but they had to wait for the swelling to go down. Trigilli claims there is good news now.
He said that von Moger escaped “any damage to the brain and head.” He needed surgery to his spin, but was “luckily not paralyzed as far as I know,” Trigilli said. He said that Trigilli’s spinal damage will likely necessitate a “very long recovery,” saying it would likely not be an easy one.
But he said it is a “great positive” that von Moger is not paralyzed and does not have serious brain damage. The video has been viewed on YoTube more than 50,000 times.
