A man from Northampton has completed a triathlon for Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, 13 weeks after they they treated him for life-threatening injuries.
Simon Glover was involved in a horrific accident in March this year, while doing DIY at home. He was using an angle grinder on a wall at his house in Grange Park when it kicked back and hit him in the neck. Warwickshire & Northamptonshire were called out to Simon’s home to provide critical care.
At hospital, Simon’s windpipe had to be completely reconstructed and he received 26 staples to his throat and neck as well as stitches to his arm.
Simon went on to make an excellent recovery, and 13 weeks after the accident he ran a triathlon with his friend Karen, to raise money for the Air Ambulance Service
Simon raised £2,200 for the charity. He later presented the cheque to the crew who had treated him.
