Jansin Turgut will be flying home tomorrow by air ambulance to continue his remarkable recovery in Hull, his family have announced.
The former Hull FC player suffered a horrific catalogue of injuries with surgeons spending hours to address severe fractures all over Turgut’s body.
Now, after almost three weeks in a hospital abroad, his mum Carole Butler has revealed her son will be flying back to Hull on June 10 to continue treatment.
She said: “The latest is he is awake and trying to communicate. He’s very quiet today. He still has a temp but they are giving him antibiotics and meds to bring that down.
“He has shown his sense of humour a couple of times. He has had no sedatives for 36 hours so he is relaxed on his own.
“His dad has flown home this morning. We will be flying home by air ambulance tomorrow where he will be admitted into intensive care again.”
A recent CT scan returned all clear with no signs of brain damage and the heart, liver and kidney of the former Sirius Academy pupil were functioning on their own.
Since then, Carole posted an update on Twitter saying Saturday was a “happy day” as her son was breathing unaided, began a communication process, and even danced to the local radio.
She said: “Throughout the day he was in and out of high temperatures, shaking, sweating, but it was still a good day.
“At one point I asked if he wanted music on. He gave me this yes sign. Local radio was the best option on my phone I’m afraid.
“The tune starts and he was lifting his shoulders in time to the music, a whole new version of bed dancing. He is so funny.”

Turgut has now been given the all clear from doctors to fly back home where he will be placed into the intensive care unit at Hull Royal Infirmary.
Carole added: “Three weeks ago I made a promise to my boy that I would not leave this island without him no matter what.
“Tomorrow son, I’m taking you home.”
