Six weeks after returning to Ireland, Sean Cox is reported to have regained consciousness in Dublin's Beaumont Hospital.
The victim of a vicious assault on the evening of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final first leg defeat of Roma, Cox's injuries left him comatose.
After initially being hospitalised in England, Cox was transferred back to Ireland in late May. As of the Liverpool Echo, Cox has now regained consciousness.
Reports of Cox's recent improvement were initially released by the website, Electric.ie. A sales director with Precision Cables, Cox's profession would have natural links with the site that produces 'a bi-monthly magazine that is distributed throughout the electrical installation industry in the Republic of Ireland.'
According to the website, Cox is on the road to recovery:
Sean has regained consciousness and is undergoing dedicated rehabilitation. Recovery is progressing positively but very slowly. His colleagues in Precision Cables are overwhelmed by the support and good wishes for Sean and his family that they receive on a daily basis. They would like once again to ask that you keep him in your prayers and that he will continue on his road to recovery.
A statement released by Liverpool FC on behalf of Cox's family revealed the overwhelming support Sean Cox's plight had encouraged:
There are no words to describe the gratitude we feel to the ordinary people of Liverpool and Ireland who have taken Sean to their hearts in a way that underlines why those places have such a deserved reputation for generosity and solidarity. Every day letters and cards arrive from this country, from Ireland and beyond. Every one of them wishes us well and the accompanying offers of support have reminded us, even in our darkest moments, that we are not walking alone."
