A year has passed since the terrible accident that engulfed the life of Alex Zanardi: the handbike champion and former Formula 1 driver still raises many concerns. To update on his health was the wife Daniela.
The woman has made it known that her health conditions are stable, but unfortunately the road is still long. Daniela Manni spoke to the Gazzetta dello Sport telling details about hospitalization of her husband:
A year after the accident, Alex’s conditions are essentially stable. He is currently hospitalized in a specialized clinic, where he is following a rehabilitation program. This includes multimodal and pharmacological stimuli under the supervision of doctors, physiotherapists, neuropsychologists and speech therapists to try to facilitate his recovery.
On 19 June 2020, Alex Zanardi was run over by a truck while he was training for the relay race of Obiettivo Tricolore. The man was found crushed under the wheels of the heavy vehicle, his condition immediately appeared critical. After one year i there have been improvements, even if small
Alex’s progress after the accident? It was a very complex process that required several neurosurgical interventions and was characterized by some setbacks. Alex is in a stable condition, which means he is able to cope with both a neurological and physical therapy program. He is able to communicate with us, but he is not yet able to speak.
Unfortunately, we will hardly see Alex Zanardi again in the race. The case of the Alex Zanardi accident is still under the examination by the Siena Public Prosecutor’s Office who wants to see clearly.
The driver of the vehicle was investigated for very serious culpable injuries, it seems that with the vehicle has invaded the opposite lane.
