Man Almost Beaten to Death Makes Progress After Serious Brain Injury


(Eastbourne Herald) – A young man almost beaten to death in an unprovoked street attack has defied the odds to move out of full-time care at Chaseley and into a specially-adapted flat.

Alfie Peak suffered a catastrophic brain injury in July 2013 at the age of 25 when he was set upon by four men in Bexhill and given just two days to live.

His life-changing injuries meant he could no longer walk or speak and had to be fed by a tube.

In 2016 Alfie moved into Chaseley and embarked on a gruelling routine of physiotherapy and rehabilitation and slowly regained movement and limited speech.

Staff say he refused to give in to his injuries and set himself the target of walking and speaking again. CONTINUE
