Jake Brown medical status? Hospital admission? Discharge?

This morning I wasn't able to find any reports of Jake Brown's injury status, after he survived the nastiest skateboard slam I've ever seen last night at the x-Games big air. We were watching this at the Staples Center, and it was really horrible. We thought this was a tragedy for sure.

Before making any more of a big deal about his walking off the ramp (after slamming so hard both shoes popped off, and reportedly lying unconscious, un-breathing, with his eyes open for several minutes), I'd like to know what type of recovery he is looking at, or if he is even still alive!

Anyone have any info? I gotta get back to work, but I'm very concerned about the guy, but hopeful to find out that he really is a-OK.
