Doctors hope rock singer Ozzy Osbourne, who is recovering from a quad bike crash, will begin breathing unassisted again soon, they said today.
The 55-year-old rocker is currently on a ventilator in intensive care at a Berkshire hospital after undergoing emergency surgery.
Osbourne, the unlikely star of MTV’s hit reality show The Osbournes, suffered a fractured vertebra, eight fractured ribs and a broken collar bone in the accident in woodland at his country mansion near Chalfont St Giles, Berkshire.
Today doctors at Wexham Park Hospital said he was in a “comfortable condition” and said they hoped to be able to take him off the ventilator as soon as possible.
