Mark McGovern, the promising GAA player who was left in a coma in the US after an incident last week is now showing signs of improvement, according to his doctors.
The 22 year old who is in San Francisco General Hospital is responding well to treatment and there is every hope that he will make a full recovery from his injuries. A spokesperson for the hospital said that although his situation is still “critical” doctors are confident that he can pull through.
McGovern was playing his first game for the Ulster SF club last Saturday evening when he suffered a severe head injury. No one that attended the game saw the incident but two witnesses told police that they overheard another player saying to McGovern ““you won’t get up from that”.
The incident is still been investigated by the police and no arrests have been made.
