Over the last few days Korean reports have indicated that a 16 year old amateur boxer, who we believe was called Kim Jung Hee [김정희], is in a coma following a cerebral haemorrhage suffered in a major national high school tournament.
The details in regards to the fighter are unclear but several sources have stated that the youngster had fought earlier in the day before joining his father at ringside to watch more bouts. Whilst at ringside he drift out of consciousness and suffered a stroke which worsened any un-diagnosed issues, though thankfully first aid was provided and that possibly helped get him to hospital where he is at the moment.
The youngster is currently in an ICU department, following surgery over the weekend to remove a haematoma on his brain, however he is a long way from being out of the woods with one quote suggesting his condition is "not good".
The news reports suggest that the police are investigating the incident and it seems like their is some doubt over the quality of medical care provided on site.
