Motorcyclist in hospital after freak accident

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 19, 2007

A freak accident on Sunday afternoon saw a motorcyclist’s neck sliced open after it got caught in a lightning conductor that had come loose from a pedestrian overhead bridge. The motorcyclist Mr Adrian Ng was travelling along Thomson Road with his pillion rider and girlfriend Carol Hwee when it happened just in front of the Thomson Meidical Centre.

The incident left the 28-year-old chef in Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s high dependency unit with severe injury to his neck.

His voice box and thyroid gland is also damaged and doctors have also created a tracheostomy – an opening in his throat – to help him breathe. (link)
