Reno 1868 Player Comes Out of a Coma, Communicating

Reno 1868 Player Comes Out of a Coma, Communicating”

A player for the San Jose Earthquakes soccer team is in critical condition after being pulled from Lake Tahoe on the Fourth of the July, team officials said Tuesday.

Authorities said Matheus likely suffered from cold-water shock when he dove into the lake.

The 20-year-old Brazilian had a breathing tube removed and is expected to undergo a series of outpatient cognitive and physical tests before being released from the intensive care unit.

Swimmers drown or almost drown each year in the lake along the Nevada-California border from cold water shock syndrome, in which people lose the ability to float because their muscles cramp, Tahoe Douglas Fire Protection District Fire Marshal Eric Guevin said.

Medics were able to revive Silva before transferring him to South Lake Tahoe hospital.

Surface water temperature in the famed lake hovers around the mid-50s this time of year.

Silva came out of the coma Thursday morning. He was taken to a nearby hospital before being flown to a facility in Reno, Nevada.

"'We are incredibly excited and relieved to announce that Matheus Silva has awoken from his coma and is fully responsive, ' said Fioranelli". That would be Silva's only appearance that season, and he appeared in four matches for the Earthquakes in 2016, a season in which he was loaned out to Arizona United SC, before the team made the decision to loan him out to Reno for 2017.

The soccer club beat the LA Galaxy II Monday night, but Silva didn't play in the 9-0 win.
