Lyme crash victim’s condition “serious but stable”
Lyme crash victim’s condiiton is “serious but stable”
A LYME Regis man who suffered massive injuries when a lorry crashed into the Mariners Hotel was said to be in a “stable condition” yesterday - but still seriously ill.
Alexander Quan-Yat-Koon – a father of one – was pushed through the front entrance of the 17th century building when a Royal Mail truck ploughed into him as he walked up Silver Street on Friday. It was his 38th birthday.
Medics had to amputate one of his legs at the scene and surgeons spent the weekend battling to save his life.
Yesterday, a spokesman at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital said Mr Quan-Yat-Koon – a trainee accountant – was still seriously ill in intensive care, but his condition had been stabilised.
