Qld Road Rage Victim Brock Prime Wakes From Coma
A fortnight after a prosecutor told a court he "may die", the victim of an alleged road rage attack on a Queensland motorway has woken from a coma.
Brock Prime, 29, had been in a medically induced coma after suffering a life-threatening head injury in the attack on the M1 near Yatala on February 24.
The Gold Coast tradie's brain was "infected" by dirt, with doctors telling Mr Prime's family he faced a "day-by-day" struggle to survive.
Ryan Hallifax, 28, Jonathan Lawrence, 26, and Jordan Baklas, 27, have since faced court charged with grievous bodily harm.
During a mention for Hallifax at Beenleigh Magistrates Court earlier this month, Acting Senior Constable Ming Gu outlined how serious Mr Prime's condition was.
"He is in a critical condition and may die," Mr Gu told the court.
Mr Prime's long-term recovery prospects are unknown though his family are reportedly hopeful of a good outcome.
Hallifax and Baklas were both granted bail earlier this month with their lawyers arguing their alleged involvements in the attack were minimal.
Lawrence, whose daughter Bella was violently killed in Victoria in 2015, has made no bail application and remains in custody.
All three matters are set to be mentioned at Beenleigh Magistrates Court on May 2.
