Back in November of 2007, Polish death metal band Decapitated were involved in a traffic accident. The horrific incident killed drummer Witold “Vitek” Kiełtyka and left singer Adrian “Covan” Kowanek in a coma. While guitarist (and Witold’s brother) Vogg continued on with Decapitated following a brief hiatus, Kowanek has been slowly recovering. And a recent video report from a Polish TV channel has provided us a glimpse at the former Decapitated singer’s current condition.
“Though he has limbs paresis, he can’t move independently and communication with him is difficult, no one doubts that he is aware of what is happening around him,” the Polish TV report says. It’s rather heartbreaking to watch video report. However, we’re happy to see that Kowanek is surrounded by loving family and is showing signs of improvement.
