Cyclist comes out coma and asks for meal

Have your say

THE family of a young cyclist left in a coma following a horror road accident knew he was on the road to recovery – when he begged them for his 
favourite takeaway meal.

Harry Davies, 11, suffered serious head injuries after being struck from behind by a white van while riding his bike in East Lothian last month.

The youngster was rushed to hospital and was medically induced into a coma for two weeks to allow his brain to fully recover from the impact. But Harry is well on the road to recovery after “badgering” his parents for a KFC meal as soon as he came round.

Delighted mum Lisa said: “It has been an incredibly worrying few weeks for us as a family, but hopefully now we can put all of this behind us.

“His injuries are healing very well and he is now able to eat, walk and talk as normally as he did before the accident. In fact, he had been badgering us for his favourite KFC takeaway meal for a few days, so he must be feeling much better.”

Harry is still being kept in Ward 7 of the Capital’s Sick Kids hospital for observation and medics are confident there will be no lasting damage done.
