WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The family of a Triad teenager who fell nearly 50 feet at Hanging Rock State Park says he is slowly improving.
On Friday, the family's Facebook page said 17-year-old Jason Messer was no longer in a medically-induced coma.
The post says he's still unconscious - and has a serious traumatic brain injury.
The McMichael High School student fell at Hanging Rock, almost 2 weeks ago. Right now - he's in the I-C-U at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
WFMY News 2's Erica Stapleton spoke to Jason's brother this week.
"I don't express emotion very much but inside I jump for joy whenever I see these improvements," said Sam Messer.
