A teenager from Treharris, South Wales was in Flatts Lane Country Park in Middlesbrough frolicking in the snow with his pals and hit a rock as he was sledging down a hill on a garbage bag. The impact with the rock opened a gaping hole on his upper leg, requiring an airlift to Prince of Wales Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil.
Mother of 16 year old Liam Stafford posted the photo of her son’s gaping wound on Facebook with a comment that the kid was on painkillers in critical but stable condition, waiting for a plastic surgeon to take a look at him.
While one report I saw claimed that the kid ripped his leg open hitting a rock sliding down hill, another one claimed he hit a tree. I guess only the kid himself knows for sure – maybe he doesn’t want anyone to know what really happened and so stories are being made up…
