    Dutch prince Johan Friso is in a coma and might never regain consciousness, doctors at the Innsbruck hospital in Austria where he is being treated said on Friday. Friso was buried by an avalanche while skiing off-trail in Austria last week. He suffered massive brain damage, and doctors said it took nearly 50 minutes to revive him after he was pulled from the snow. The 43-year-old is the second son of the Netherlands's Queen Beatrix, and is married with two young daughters.
