Doctors called him ‘the amazing man’, consultants called him ‘one in a million’ and many others called him ‘a blooming miracle’! On 4 August 2005 David Hughes fell while pruning a tree, and a scaffold pole fractured the side of his skull, causing serious damage to his brain. He wasn’t expected to live. But David has been astounding people all his life. As cyclist, marksman, archer, designer and engineer he has always been a high achiever. Now with the same energy and drive David has disproved medical opinion and rewritten the text books. He is overcoming his injuries and his life is as full of achievement as it ever was.
