This time his head injury was his third major concussion, and it put him in a coma. He dove for a ball...and it wasn't pretty. He had seizures, stopped breathing for a bit. It was really touch and go. He's definitely lucky to be alive.

Yes people, it's amazing! This young man did not grow up speaking Spanish, nor did he study it in school. Omg! He's been hounded by the press for an explanation, and all he can think of is that he's been exposed to the language through his friendships. Now as he's slowly recovering, he's losing his fluency.
