Former South Africa international Naka Drotske is currently in intensive care after a drawback in his recovery after being shot in a robbery.
Drotske, a World Cup winner in 1995, did actually be recuperating well after the attack in Pretoria.
But a statement from a medical facility he could be in said that the 47-year-old has been”at a serious but stable condition”.
It included:”It’s likely that he’ll undoubtedly likely soon be ventilated for another couple of days and maintained under anesthesia.”
Drotske was giving a thumbs up from his hospital bed in the attack’s aftermath, while his cousin had said he would return home.
But, his sisterinlaw posted a message on networking saying Drotske had had a drawback.
The hospital added that although his”intra-abdominal bleeding” has stopped,”his lungs are still not strong enough to deal with itself due to the Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome and secondary lung infection”.
At the right time of their shooting, local reports said Drotske was visiting family with business partner and fellow former Springbok Os du Randt when these were assaulted by four men. The latter was not hurt.
Drotske played one game in 1995 during South Africa’s homeworld Cup victory and won 26 caps between 1993 and 1999. He played from 2001-2003 with London Irish.
