A video has been put online showing Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, who was left in a coma following a car accident in 2008, moving his leg.

Although no longer in comatose, Cheng has been in a semi-conscious state since 2009, but he has been showing some signs of improvement over the last two years, with some ability to make vocal sounds and slight movement returning to his hands. It was announced this month that Cheng was now able to move one of his legs on command, and the founder of the Chi Ling Cheng Special Needs Trust, which raises money for the musician’s medical fees, has posted a video of that development on YouTube.
