Teenager with Asperger syndrome who broke spine after bridge fall thanks well-wishers for support

A teenager who's been told he will never walk again after falling from a bridge has given his first television interview.

Joshua Davies says he was running away from a gang when he fell from the fifty-foot bridge.

He lives with Asperger syndrome, which is a type of autism.

Mike Griffiths meets him.

Since Joshua's story was first reported a fortnight ago, he's had messages of support from far and wide.

His family is now coming to terms with his life-changing injuries.

Joshua faces a long and difficult recovery. Soon he'll transfer to a specialist rehabilitation unit at Rookwood Hospital.

His family are grateful for the progress he's made so far.
