UPDATE: ADAMS IMPROVING
National footballer Akeem Adams is said to have shown positive signs of recovery and is alert and aware of his surroundings.
The 22-year-old defender, who plays professionally with Hungarian first division club Ferencvarosi Toma (FTC), had his left leg amputated on Tuesday during a surgical procedure to save his life.
A release on the club's website quoted executive director Russian Paul as saying: "The Trinidadian player woke up on Thursday, communicated with his family and the doctors but was not "pure".
"Adams is gradually shut off the ventilator once the parameters of leg amputations are better. The fever is gone and the lungs are not damaged," said Russian.
Adams, who played in his team's 3-1 Hungarian Derby away win against Ujpest on September 22, suffered a heart attack on September 25, that posed a severe threat to his life.
