Tom and Melanie Bianchi arrived in Japan late Thursday and headed to the Mie General Medical Center in Yokkaichi, where their brother was taken after the high-speed smash that has triggered an outpouring of support and calls for improved safety in the glamour sport.
Lorenz Leclerc, a young man said to be Bianchi’s best friend, joined his parents Philippe and Christine at the hospital earlier on Thursday. Bianchi’s relatives, who were seen outside the hospital, have not spoken to reporters at the scene. In a statement earlier this week they acknowledged the severity of the situation.
