A teenager from Pontypridd has been told he'll never walk again after falling fifty feet from a bridge whilst running away from bullies, according to his family.
Joshua Davies, 18, broke his spine in four places during the fall last month.
His family claim Joshua was being targeted by bullies because he suffers from Asperger's Syndrome.
Joshua is recovering in the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff where he has undergone three operations, and will not be able to sit up for six weeks.
His family said that he is still upbeat even though he has been told he will never walk again.
