, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Belgian cyclist Kris Boeckmans has been placed in an induced coma following a bad crash he suffered during stage 8 of the Vuelta de Espana (Tour of Spain) cycle race on Saturday.
Boeckmans hit his head badly during one of several falls which marred Saturday's stage. He hit the ground around 50 kilometers from the finish in the city of Murcia in the south-east of the country.
A statement published by his Lotto-Soudal team confirmed, that the rider, who was taken to hospital in Murcia, had "severe facial trauma," as well as "concussion, three broken ribs and bleeding on his lung. The doctors will now keep him in an induced coma for a few days," informed the team.
Meanwhile the Spanish press quotes the official Vuelta Doctor, Mikel Martinez as saying Boeckmans Nouvelle Nike Air Max Pas Cher
