Tenor Salvatore Licitra ‘Struggling Valiantly’ After Crash

 

Italian tenor Salvatore Licitra is in serious but stable condition, according to Sergio Pintaudi of Garibaldi Hospital in Catania, where the singer is being treated for head and chest injuries after crashing on his Vespa Saturday night.

Pintaudi said that Licitra is “struggling valiantly” but the injuries to his brain are serious.

Hospital Director Angelo Pellicano said Licitra was in a coma with extensive injuries when he was brought to the hospital by helicopter from another facility.

The above is based on Google translations of Italian news reports.
