The King’s time was good enough for seventh place, but problems with the either his control of the car, or the car itself have placed a great deal of questions on whether or not he will live through the night. The relatively young Carl Frederick VI took his car off of a relatively steep hill where his car should have come to a stop. Instead of stopping, his car turned sharply further down the hill race and flipped down a hill where after rolling multiple times the vehicle caught fire. The King was taken from the wreckage by the Royal Mounted Guards and immediately brought to a hospital where blunt force drama to his head appeared to be the main problem aside from slight burns. The King complained of a headache and passed out and this prompted medical scans on his head where profuse bleeding of the King’s brain has caused a great deal of pressure within his skull. This pressure can lead to severe brain damage. Carl Frederick VI was rushed to an emergency room where holes were drilled into his skulls to release the pressure, but it is feared that action was taken too late. Thus far the royal family has yet to make any comments, but sources close to the surgeon have suggested that the outlook does not look promising. The city of Gøternhavn has entered into a state of vigils and prayers in which candles and flowers have been placed en masse in front of the hospital. Police have had to begin moving this outpouring of emotion to locations further away from the enterance in order to allow other patients access to the hospital. Further showings like this have been seen at the Royal Palace as well, where police urge the public to make their support visible to allow for others to access to the healthcare services.
