Raz B suffered blunt force trauma and fell into a coma. He has been hospitalized in a critical condition, and placed under life support.
Raz B was singing at the night spot, when he intervened. He had a cut lip from the broken bottle, and had minor surgery, to stitch up the wound. It was unknown if he had other medical checks. Evidently, it was not treated as a serious incident, until he failed to regain consciousness the following day, after he fell asleep for the night.
