A Scottish judo star who suffered head injuries from a motorbike accident in Vietnam last month has shown signs of recovery following treatment in Thailand.
Family of the Commonwealth Games silver medalist Stephanie Inglis said her “brain is healing” after a surgery at a hospital in Thailand, the BBC reported.
They said doctors are undergoing a process to bring her out of a medically-induced coma. The process can take around two weeks.
“They are optimistic at the moment that the brain activity is returning,” said a statement from Inglis’ family and friends, as cited by Scotland's The Evening Times.
Inglis has been in a coma since the accident on May 10, when she was taking a xe om motorbike taxi to an English language center in Quang Ninh Province in northern Vietnam. Her ao dai was caught in the wheel, pulling her off the bike.
The 27-year-old has taught English to Vietnamese children for four months under a charity program.
She was flown to Bangkok last week after being treated around two weeks in a Hanoi hospital. 
More than 6,700 people had donated more than US$350,000 to a fundraising campaign set up by Inglis’ childhood friend and judo competitor Khalid Gehlan to help pay for her medical bills as her travel insurance had been deemed invalid.
