Deftones' Chi Cheng able to move leg 'by request'

Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, who has been in a coma-like state since an automobile accident in late-2008, has apparently shown notable signs of improvement in recent days. The following update was posted on (a Chi Cheng fundraising website):
"Here is a video Juan (Deftones tour manager) sent me of Chi lifting his leg by request. You will also hear momma j encouraging him. It's little baby steps like this that bring Chi closer to recovery. He just has to keep trying and working hard at the little things.. eventually more progress will be made."
The aformentioned video can be seen below: This is the latest milestone in Cheng's recovery. Nearly two years ago we reported some encouraging developments, and although Cheng is still unable to speak or communicate, we'll continue to hope for the best.
