Condition of young man, whose car overturned in Zejtun yesterday, takes a turn for the better

The young man who yesterday afternoon was involved in a serious traffic accident in Triq tal-Barrani, Zejtun is no longer in critical condition, although he sustained grievous injuries.

It was the young man himself, Lucas Azzopardi who from his hospital bed at Mater Dei, uploaded a post on his FB profile and said his condition had taken a turn for the better. This was after yesterday he was certified to be in danger of dying due to his injuries.

He wrote that he was feeling better than yesterday and was not in danger of dying. At the same time he had words of praise for all those who helped him at the hospital as well as the paramedics and the emergency treatment he received at the scene, including the crew from the Civil Protection Department who had a hard time to pull him out of the car because of the extensive damage caused to the vehicle.

Lucas also apologised to the ambulance crew for the shock he gave them and hopes that they are feeling better.
