Well-known Bellingen musician Pete Hanson (aka Pete Bufo) has come out of an induced coma following an incident at the Lennox Head Hotel on Friday night in which he fell and hit his head.

Mr Hanson was seen talking to a bouncer outside the hotel moments before he fell. He was treated for head injuries in the early hours of Saturday morning at Gold Coast Hospital.

According to his family in a message posted yesterday evening, ‘Pete regained consciousness and has just started talking again. He’s aware of the year, his date of birth and recognises everyone around him. His memory is also looking good at this stage.’

The message appeared on the Facebook page For Pete’s Sake, set up after the incident to keep fans informed and to ask for donations to help with his hospitalisation and recovery.

Police are conducting an investigation into the circumstances around the fall and are appealing for witnesses to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
