Report: T.J. Lavin shows signs of improvement, emerges from medically-induced coma

The condition of T.J. Lavin, an extreme BMX biker and star of MTV's "The Challenge," is improving and he no longer is in a medically-induced coma, his family and friends tell the Las Vegas Review Journal.

While Lavin is not yet talking and remains in intensive care, reports that he did give doctors a "thumbs up" sign. Lavin, 33, reportedly has wrist, rib and face fractures suffered when he lost control of his bike attempting a stunt in the Dew Tour Championships on Thursday night in Las Vegas. He had been placed in the coma because of bleeding and swelling in his brain.
