Tragedy for Team Yamaha d´Antin

Tragedy for Team Yamaha d´Antin

The following is a statement from Team Yamaha d´Antin:

<< The team´s bus arrived back from Montmelo on Tuesday small hours to the team´s central base placed in Gregorio Quejido industrial park of Algete, a town near to Madrid. The Hospitality Unit personnel travelled in the bus and they decided to sleep inside the bus´s room, where they usually sleep on the World Championship paddocks during the GPs. For some reasons of unknown origin both of them lost consciousness. The team was alarmed by their disappearance and started to search and they finally found them this morning inside the bus.

The bus driver, José Luis Trigo (36) was dead and Martín Fernández Avilés (24) was urgently moved on to Clínica de La Paz hospital in Madrid semiconscious, and he stays in the Intense Care Unit where he has experienced a notable improvement in the last hours, which make us more confident and optimistic about his total recovery. >>
