Helix drummer Greg “Fritz” Hinz will remain hospitalized “for at least a couple of weeks” after fracturing his skull in a fall from the roof of his house.
According to Helix singer Brian Vollmer, Fritz sustained his injuries after going out to the front of his home to fix some shingles on the roof. When his girlfriend’s sister went out to check on him, he was laying on the front lawn, having fallen from the roof. He had a seizure on the front lawn and then another on the way to the hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. They immediately put him in a drug-induced coma with breathing tubes down his throat.
Earlier this week, Vollmer posted the following update on Hinz‘s condition: “Thank you to everyone who have sent their well wishes and prayers for Fritz. I’ve been in constant communication with [his girlfriend] Tracey and she’s given me the go-ahead to post the latest news on how he’s doing.
