UPDATE! Kurt Darren sustains eye damage and memory loss
The much loved Afrikaans prince of pop, Kurt Darren, has sustained a blow to the head, which doctors suspect has caused some eye damage, reports Eyewitness News. He will remain in the intensive care unit at Netcare Milpark Hospital for the next two days. The Loslappie singer broke eight ribs during a car accident over the weekend. His brother, Darren van Heerden, says he will undergo some more brain scans. "A nerve in his eye has been damaged. He can't focus with his eyes. The doctors are hoping it will come right on its own otherwise they'll have to step in." Darren Van Heerden said that his brother is also experiencing some memory loss. "He seems to be forgetting that he's even in hospital. He's not 100% just yet." On Saturday, Kurt was airlifted to hospital after the car he was travelling in with a colleague fell into a ditch in the Pretoria East area.
