Back In Action: Chapecoense Defender Neto Resumes Training 10 Weeks After Tragic Air Crash
Chapecoense defender Helio Neto has returned to light training, 10 weeks after the plane crash that killed 19 of his teammates.
He suffered trauma to his skull, thorax and lungs, in addition to hypothermia.
Fellow crash survivor Alan Ruschel posted a message on Instagram of himself jogging alongside Helio Neto at Chapecoense’s Conde Arena in southern Brazil on Tuesday.
“We’re coming back,” Ruschel, who began running again last month, wrote alongside the image.
Chapecoense were later declared winners of the prestigious tournament at the request of Atletico Nacional.
