“It’s been a storm without equal. It has gone around the world, and my phone has been red hot since Tuesday, says Michael Krüger, national coach of the Danish Triathlon Federation, now at third day waiting for news about the Danish European champion Camilla Pedersen, who crashed her bike Tuesday night.
Camilla Pedersen suffered serious injuries in the back of the head, including a fractured skull and internal bleeding, even though she wore a helmet. She was put in artificial coma at Odense University Hospital, where she both Tuesday and Wednesday was on the operating table.
“She’s still in a critical state, but reasonably stable at the moment, ” says Michael Krüger Friday morning, who as a personal trainer for Camilla Pedersen is very touched by the situation. “Doctors say that the first 72 hours are the most difficult in this kind of injuries. There have also been ups and downs, but tonight we have over the first three days, ” said Michael Krüger.
