Bajista de Marilyn Manson, cae en coma tras accidente


El músico Juan Alderete, bajista de Marilyn Manson y The Mars Volta, cayó en coma tras sufrir un grave accidente en bicicleta.

Su esposa Anne dio a conocer lo sucedido en la cuenta de Instagram del músico:

Aunque generalmente dudo en compartir detalles personales en las redes sociales, me pareció correcto incluir a todos ustedes que han apoyado a Juan a lo largo de los años como amigos y músicos”.

Hi everyone – this is Anne, Juan's wife. While I generally hesitate to share personal details on social media, it felt right to include all of you who've supported Juan over the years as friends, fans, fellow music (and food, cat, bike, Japan) lovers and musicians. Juan was in a solo (no cars, other people) and very serious bicycle accident on 1/13/20 not far from our home. He – as always – was wearing a helmet and protective clothing but sustained serious head trauma in the form of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); his form of TBI is Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) and as of today, he remains in a coma. The only prognosis is to wait and see, as the brain is a complicated organ and the outcomes for DAI patients has a range as wide as the sea. While frustrating, it also allows for a world of positive outcomes so we can only hope for the best. We know you have questions, concerns, thoughts to share, so please feel free to leave them in the comments (not DM please, sorry) here. We're also very eager to hear from neurologists, medical professionals with experience in DAI and TBI, first-person accounts of similar trauma and outcomes – essentially any useful, factual and accurate resources that relate to Juan's injury. If you have any of these, please DM me (Anne) @tunatoast. We will post updates here from time to time. Thank you all and please keep Juan in your thoughts. – xo, Anne

Explicó que el 13 de enero Alderete se accidentó en bicicleta cerca de su casa, y aunque llevaba equipo de protección como el casco el golpe le provocó una lesión cerebral traumática y hasta el momento permanece en coma.

“El único pronóstico es esperar”, agregó Anne, quien también pidió ayuda a neurólogos y especialistas con experiencia en este tipo de traumatismos.

Alderete, de 56 años, es un músico activo que tocaba en los conciertos que ofrece la banda de Marilyn Manson, desde 2017 hasta antes de su accidente. Con The Mars Volta permaneció de 2003 a 2012.
