Prince Johan Friso of Orange-Nassau in critical condition

Prince Johan Friso, 43, second son of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, is reported to be in critical condition at the Uniklinik Innsbruck, Austria, after having been buried by an avalance at Lech, Austria, earlier today. His wife Mabel as well as his mother Queen Beatrix are at his bed-side, while his brother the Prince of Orange (Willem-Alexander), Princess Máxima and other members of the Dutch royal family are flying in from the Netherlands tonight.

According to Telegraph.co.uk, the prince's condition is described as "critical but stable". The Netherlands Government Information Service (Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst, RDV) has informed that a prognosis can be given after a few days. His condition is stable, but he is not out of life danger ("...zijn toestand stabiel, maar hij is niet buiten levensgevaar"). See also the Austrian news site Oe24.at (in German).

My thoughts are with Prince Johan Friso and his family.
