Ribeiro was riding as a passenger on the motorcycle, and was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. He was immediately rushed to a hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.
“My assistant said that the doctor said for sure that he (Ribeiro) has lost sight in one of his eyes,” Soares said. “He’s still in a coma. After surgery the doctor said there is a 50-50 shot that he will come out of it (survive).”
