He was put into a drug-induced coma and once he regain consciousness after 9 days he asked how his team performed in the final against Colombia's Atletico Nacional, which didn't go through because of the plane crash. He also asked why he was in the hospital and what happened that brought him there.

Doctors of the Colombian hospital have asked the helped of psychologists on the best course of action they needed to take to keep the truth hidden to save him any additional trauma.

“It’s a recommendation from the psychologist not to tell him (about the tragic plane crash) just yet to avoid any emotional shock that would be potentially damaging for his clinical recovery at this moment," Dr. Carlos Mendonca told Brazilian television station TV Globo. "So we should follow this qualified opinion for now.”

Initial reports of the crash investigation have suggested that the aircraft was low on fuel, according to authorities.

Another survivor of the crash, journalist Rafael Henzel, said Sunday that the pilot never told the passengers to fasten their seat-belts during the flight.
