The family of a teenager who was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition are running a marathon to raise funds for the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance. 18 year old Jordan White fell 30 ft through the roof of a derelict warehouse in Rowhedge in Colchester last April.
Jordan was left with a severe brain injury, a punctured lung, torn liver and kidney and small bones broken in his back. After spending weeks in a coma and then months in rehabilitation he's on his way to recovery.
Having never run before, Kevin, Jordan’s mum and his uncle will be taking part in the Brighton marathon in April. Jordan’s ambition is to be a personal trainer and he is helping his dad with his exercising and healthy diet.
They hope to raise £5000 for the charity, which relies on donations and needs to find £440,000 each month to keep the service running.
