‘I Should Be Dead’: Dad’s Miracle Escape From New Year’s Eve Nightmare

Michael Clark

(The Weekly Times) – Michael Clarke walked into his Wurtulla home for the first time in two months yesterday after knocking on death’s door.

The first-time father overcame impossible odds after he came off his motorised skateboard in a New Year’s Eve nightmare.

He doesn’t know how it happened, but he was “flipped off” and suffered a “catastrophic severe” brain injury.

He had no helmet, no phone, no wallet, and was found lying on the road utterly helpless as a real life ‘John Doe’.

Emergency services raced him to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, where staff quickly transferred him in a critical condition to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. CONTINUE
