Injured Mirror dancer Mo Li’s condition improves from serious to stable

The condition of Mo Li, the dancer who was more severely injured at Mirror’s concert in July, has further improved from serious to stable. But Chang Tsz-fung, the other dancer injured during the infamous accident, recently revealed his recovery has not been smooth.

Responding to media inquiries on Tuesday, a spokesperson for Queen Elizabeth Hospital said that Li has been transferred to a neurosurgery ward and his vital signs are stable.

On the other hand, Chang shared a rare Instagram story last Friday to update followers on his recovery.

“After a series of intensive treatments, my body and mind are exhausted, and my body’s condition has been [getting better sometimes and getting worse at other times]. It is difficult to sleep every night, but I will try hard to face it,” he wrote in the story.

Li suffered serious damage to his nerves while Chang had injuries to his pelvis and cervical spine after a huge video screen fell on the middle of the stage in the Hong Kong Coliseum while they were performing during the concert.

Separately, Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li revealed on Monday he had visited Li last week and offered a donation of HK$10 million (US$1.27 million) to Li’s family.

Li is the chairman of PCCW, the parent company of Mirror concert organizers MakerVille and Music Nation.

But Reverend Derek Li, Mo Li’s father, declined the offer for the time being, saying in a statement for his family on Facebook, “Because the issue of who is responsible [for the accident] has not been settled properly yet, all donations are premature.”

The organizers earlier pledged to foot all the medical bills for the two dancers.

“Although [Mo Li’s] psychological quality is gradually becoming positive, as his elderly parents, we are very worried about what his future life will be like,” the pastor said.

“If the situation really does not improve and we rest in the Lord’s arms one day, we will leave with regret and sadness.”

The pastor earlier revealed that doctors have said the younger Li only has a 5 percent chance of making a full recovery.

A government task force looking into the matter said three weeks ago that the use of poor quality cables, issues with how the cables were installed and an error in the reported weight of the LED screen are among the possible causes of the accident.

But the task force said it was not fair to put the blame on anyone at this stage as investigations by both the task force and other government departments are still ongoing.
