Josef Fritzl's 19-year-old daughter, whose admission to hospital in April exposed an Austrian incest case that stunned the world, has been brought out of a coma and has left hospital, a spokesman said yesterday. Kerstin, who was born from Fritzl's decades-long incestuous relationship with his daughter Elisabeth, and spent her entire life locked up in a cellar with her mother and two siblings, 'was woken up from her artificially-induced coma,' Klaus Schwertner, a spokesman for the hospital in Amstetten, said. She had left the hospital 'a few days ago' but still needed medical and therapeutic care, he added, without giving details. A press conference about Kerstin's health was scheduled for today. The young woman was admitted unconscious to the hospital 100km west of Vienna on April 19. She was later placed in intensive care on a life-support machine, as doctors deemed her condition life-threatening. But the hospital announced late last month that they would start waking her up from her coma. Kerstin is the eldest of seven children born to Elisabeth, 42, during the 24 years she was hidden in an underground cell and sexually abused by Fritzl, 73. The young woman and two of her brothers, aged 18 and five, had until then spent their lives in the cellar with their mother, never seeing sunlight. Three other children born from the incest were brought to live with Fritzl and his wife, while a seventh child died shortly after birth. Fritzl is in custody pending charges.
