Davies Family Statement

"The tremendous support the family has received is of great comfort and much appreciated at this difficult time. Our thoughts also go out to the families and friends of those involved in the accident. We would also like to thank all the staff at Washington Hospital Center in Washington D.C. and the staff at the United States Soccer Federation for all their tremendous efforts. Charlie is in a serious but stable condition and is resting after extensive surgery. If you would like to send any messages of support to Charlie we have set up an e-mail account at Thank you again and we will keep you informed when possible as Charlie continues his recovery."

Clearly some of the family is going to be in DC for awhile. Anyone have any ideas how to maybe help them out?

Could we get some more clarification on what state charlies in??? It sounds like hes in a half coma like state from what i read... is that right?? :(

He is probably on some very good painkillers, and a bit out of it. That's all.

Steven, thanks for this.

Incidentally, I wanted to mention that your coverage of soccer is hugely appreciated, not just for locals but for people across the country. I'm from upstate NY and support the Revolution but your stuff is must-read.

being a reconstructive plastic surgeon who takes care of lower extremity injuries. i worry that his fractures may be that of the open type which require multiple surgeries and tissue flaps to cover these wounds. i hope he doesnt have this type of injury as these take a much longer time to heal and have a higher complication rate.

if they use the word stable that means he is probably not in a coma.

God Bless Charlie!

Goff, in a prior thread, you stated that Fredua (Fro) Adu, Freddy's younger brother, scored for George Mason. If I'm not mistaken, Freddy is 20 years of age. His brother Fro is listed as a junior at G.M.U. Wouldn't that make Fro about age 20 or 21?

@YNOT1970 - not sure why you're asking in this thread but GMU's website also lists Fro as being born in 1991...just 18 years old.

Bob Bradley visited him yesterday and described Davies as "responsive." He explained one of Charlie's doctors coming in and asking Davies to blink his eyes if he could hear him. He did. No coma.

Maybe Sochaux will come over in their off-season and play a friendly with DC United as a testimonial for Charlie - all this rehab cannot be cheap.

Posted by: IamAM | October 15, 2009 6:10 PM | Report abuse

That is a great idea IamAM. Too bad nobody cares about the USMNT in Seattle because that would earn hella scrilla for Charlie.

Sochaux has great medical care!

Oh, and I'm sure CD has a few euro.

Who was the third person in the car with Davies and the young lady?

Posted by: wsyacy | October 16, 2009 10:46 AM | Report abuse

@IamAM, Sochaux might be Ligue 2 then, no? It's early yet but they are only a pt above relegation a fifth of the season through. I'm sure they would love a friendly here!
