As reported by a local publication, la Repubblica, Napoli, Capriati underwent a delicate pneumothorax surgery by Alberto D’Agostino, director of the Major Trauma Surgery Department of the Sant’Anna and San Sebastiano hospital in Caserta. The prognosis is still reserved and the young man is still in danger of life.
Explaining the situation, professor D’Agostino who manages the hospital’s internal and external surgical emergencies said, “The boy arrived with a potentially fatal wound to the chest, very deep that affected the lungs. He was also subjected to a transfusion. At the moment the parameters are stable and this gives us hope, but the prognosis is still reserved for at least another 48 hours and is still in danger of life “.
Currently, Capriati’s 61-year old father has been arrested for the attempted murder and is currently in prison for the same.
Industry friends and fans alike have taken to social media to wish Capriati a speedy recovery.
