3 weeks after the Club Colectiv fire in Bucharest, which killed nearly 60 people and has left dozens of others seriously injured, Andrei Găluţ, the sole surviving member of Romanian metalcore quintet Goodbye to Gravity, has regained consciousness while undergoing treatment in the Netherlands. Găluţ, who has 45% burns and still remains in a serious condition with damage to his respiratory tract, has yet to find out about the deaths of his bandmates or his girlfriend, who passed away last week, as it is unknown how it may affect him mentally or physically in his recovery. He is still heavily anaesthetized and can only remain conscious for a short time each day, and it is thought that, due to the extent of the burns to his face and body, he will require up to 5 years of reconstructive surgery should he survive.
