""I thought I’d never walk again""

A TEENAGER has told how he feared being unable to walk again after a paragliding accident.

George Graham fell almost 30ft to the ground and felt searing pain in his back and legs.

He was airlifted to hospital but luckily he only suffered muscle damage to his back as he had landed in a muddy field, which broke his fall.

George, 17, spoke about the accident at a presentation of a £692 cheque to the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust by Watlington Concert Band with whom he plays the trombone.

He praised the flying medics, saying: “Thank you to the crew that were on duty that day for everything that they did.”
