Braintree: Builder who suffered life-threatening injuries reunited with air ambulance crew
3:00pm Wednesday 13th March 2013 in News
A builder who suffered life-threatening injuries when he fell 12 feet at his family home has visited the air ambulance crew that saved him.
John Boswell was in the process of re-building his home in Rank’s Green, near Great Leighs, when he fell through a stairwell and onto a concrete basement floor.
The grandfather-of-11 was knocked unconscious, punctured both lungs and suffered a traumatic brain injury and broken pelvis, back, neck and ribs.
John, now 58, was given little chance of survival, but the Essex Air Ambulance arrived at the scene quickly, performing an emergency operation on his driveway to reinflate his lungs.
Three years on from the accident, which took place in January 2010, John has been reunited with the air ambulance crew.
