During his transfer to hospital, the player was placed in an induced coma by doctors. "A decision taken due to his agitation at that time. He has since been taken care of by the intensive care unit of the Bordeaux establishment." The Girondins de Bordeaux published a press release during Sunday confirming that Alberth Elis is “a victim of head trauma which led to the player being placed in a protective artificial coma”. The player also underwent surgery overnight from Saturday to Sunday at CHU Pellegrin in Bordeaux.

But this Wednesday, February 28, the Bordeaux club, through the player's family, announced very good news, Alberth Elis has finally come out of the artificial coma.
