Danish star Kenni Larsen reportedly sustained his gunshot wounds to the head in an airgun accident as he remains in an induced coma this morning.

Larsen was taken to Odense University Hospital on Thursday afternoon and has undergone two operations to remove the airgun pellet and relieve a build-up of fluid on his brain.

If his condition is stable, doctors will try to wake him in about two to three days. Kenni’s family is very grateful for the support they have received at such a difficult time.

Larsen family

While police investigations are ongoing, Larsen’s family released a brief statement via Falubaz.com, admitting the incident was a tragic accident.

The statement read: “What happened Kenni was an accident. Kenni underwent neurological surgery to remove the bullet from an air gun. It was followed by a pharmacological coma and he had another operation on Friday. They had to remove extra fluids from the brain, which caused additional pressure.

“If his condition is stable, doctors will try to wake him in about two to three days.

"Kenni’s family is very grateful for the support they have received at such a difficult time.”

Fyn police believe there were no witnesses to the incident and are waiting to speak to Larsen when he is medically fit.

Police chief Christian Rasmussen told Ekstra Bladet: “Our investigations suggest that the gun went off while he was alone. But we cannot ask him yet, so hopefully he comes out of the coma soon. We do not know exactly. We simply lack the young man's explanation.”
