Many of you will know Quadrathlete and excellent kayaker ‘James Block’ from Shrewsbury, he was involved a head on car accident a fortnight ago. Sadly the all the family were in the car but the good news is, that despite the many serious injuries, none are life threatening, and they are all mending.
James and one daughter are still in Stoke hospital, Jo his wife and the younger daughter were discharged last Wednesday but Jo is staying in to support the other daughter. Grandparents are looking after the younger daughter.
It is thought that the driver of the other car lost consciousness while driving causing her car to swerve into the oncoming traffic. So tragic for her family.

Thanks to Gill Otto for letting us know, we wanted to let BQA members know, so that good thoughts and our positive healing wishes can boost the determination of them all to get fit again soon. They are certainly all fighting souls and our thoughts are with them all.
