  1. Unfortunately I suffered the same fate when I was 6/7 years of age, I was on a school trip to Knaresborough Castle, I climbed over the wall and spent two weeks in a coma at Harrogate General, the emergency services contacted my parents, however at the time my dad was rescucitating a boy of the same age who had drowned in a swimming pool, just prior to the fall I remember going in between a wooden fence, a passer by carried me up the bank to the medical centre, if it had not been for him I would surely have drowned. The hospital team recieving me thought I had been in a road traffic accident.
