The record crowds have left the beach, and the three massive extreme sports stadiums are being broken down and trucked to the next stop on the DEW Tour, but Colorado native Jay Eggleston remains hospitalized in nearby Salisbury, after a gruesome crash during last Saturday’s BMX Vert competition forced doctors to put him in a medically-induced coma.

Eggleson, 37, has reportedly come out of the coma and is responding to commands like wiggling his toes and sticking out his tongue with his wife and four-month-old daughter by his side.

He will be transported to a hospital in Colorado this weekend to continue his recovery.
