A grandfather from Essex has received a fragment of Chelmsford's Army and Navy flyover as a Christmas present from his daughter.
David Leavy, 67, came to a stop on the flyover when he had a heart attack in 2010.
He survived and, as well as having a pacemaker fitted, doctors found a previously undiagnosed heart condition.
Mr Leavy's daughter Dawn Tyler decided to give him a piece of the flyover when she found out it was going to be demolished.
An engineering report in September found it was unsafe and recommended permanent closure; work to knock it down will begin this year.
Mrs Tyler wrote to Essex County Council (ECC) to ask for a piece of the structure.
She said: “When we saw the flyover had closed and was due to be taken down, we thought it would be a great idea to try and get him a small piece of it.
“We got a box frame to present it in and gave it to him on Christmas Day."
