Pro BMX dirt bike rider TJ Lavin, who has been in a medically induced coma after attempting a dangerous stunt in Las Vegas, has shown some signs of improvement, according to new reports.

According to ESPN, the athlete’s mother, Barbara, sent a text message to his friend Tim “Fuzzy” Hall, and reported that Lavin was able to move his hands on Saturday.

“Neuro came and spoke to T.J.,” she wrote in the text message. “He moved his hands around and he gave the docs a thumbs up. He is not conscious. He’s back on sedation to rest and minimize brain swelling.”
