Latest on Possum Bourne - And it's not good

Not good at all in fact - Possum has severe brain damage, and it looks like they're going to turn him off...

We'll miss you Possum.

Geezus, that is not good news. I'm not doubting you FF but I hope your source is mis-informed

I'm still amazed about how all this happened.

Just to clarify things...

He's been on life support since the crash, and they turned it off during the weekend as the brain normally heals enough to let the patient breathe without it - this wasn't the case, and after a brain scan it was found the damage was worse than what they thought.

It hasn't been turned off since, but the fact is that he can't breathe without lifesupport - it's the only thing keeping him alive.
