Ballajura cricket bat bashing victim Brandon Orr out of coma

Ballajura cricket bat bashing victim Brandon Orr out of coma

The victim of a cricket bat attack has woken from his coma almost two weeks after the incident that left him fighting for his life.

Brandon Orr, 26, was bashed with a cricket bat outside the Alexander Bar & Bistro in Ballajura this month.

He was leaving the pub on Tuesday, November 3, when the incident happened after a fight broke out.

He has suffered bleeding on the brain and a fractured skull in the incident.

It was announced last night on the Ballajura Community and Crime Watch Facebook page that he was awake.

“He has had his intubation removed and has woken very well — still very confused and distressed but that was to be expected,” the update read.

“The next steps are still unknown but we know his rehabilitation stay will be a very long process.”
