Naka Drotské is fighting for his life. According to reports published by SA Rugby Mag, the former Springbok hooker has been put on oxygen support to stabilise his breathing.

Soon after Drotské had been returned to hospital and placed in the intensive care unit (ICU), he developed a lung infection. It is reported that even after doctors had put Drotské on a new, potent antibiotic to fight off the infection, he was still desaturating at high levels, struggling to breathe.

It is not clear as yet how Drotské’s recovery regressed from when he was discharged from hospital. The more important thing right now for the doctors is to work on stabilising his condition.

According to the hospital’s spokesperson, Barbara Steenkamp, the former Springbok hooker is on full ventilation. Steenkamp warned that it was against policy to divulge such information but it was important to know that Drotské would be under full observation for the next three days.

His family credit his bravery for their survival. It is said that Drotské tackled the suspects out of the house, giving his family enough time to make an escape.

Unfortunately, the man suffered three gunshot wounds to the back and is somehow, by the sheer grace of luck, still fighting for his life.

The whole nation is rallying behind the Free State Cheetahs coach’s speedy recovery.
