Brock Prime has opened his eyes nearly three weeks after being placed in an induced coma.
The 29-year-old has been unconscious in the Gold Coast University Hospital, after he was allegedly attacked by a group of men on the side of the M1 at Yatala on February 24, following a road rage incident.
A photo went up on Brock's Instagram page on Thurdsay, showing the tradie with his eyes open, with tubes in his nose and a massive scar on his head, sparking reports he has woken up.
The post has since garnered a heap of comments and well wishes.
"So glad your awake Brock!! Thinking of you and sending lots of love your way," wrote brookeymcconnell.
"You were always a tough bloke mate and to survive this ordeal just reiterates it even more. Hang in there mate," posted jclark442000.
The hospital has only confirmed Brock is still in a serious by stable condition.
