Nico’s accident

This is just to let all of Nico’s friends and acquaintances know that in the evening of 7 January 2015 Nico broke his neck in a bad fall on some steps near his home. The injury is very serious and he has been kept in an artificial coma in Luxembourg City’s main hospital since that day while doctors are trying to help him recover. He has many activities planned but the accident will keep him grounded for a while….
