In a Coma, and Losing His Leg After Crash, Father Returns to the Gym

Mark Rosher

(Daily Mail) – A weight-lifting father who lost his leg and fell into a coma for a month following a horrific motorcycle crash has not let his injuries keep him away from the gym. Marek Roscher had his left leg amputated, a chunk of his hip removed, his stomach stitched together and his arm held in place with metal pins after the smash in June 2016.

The 31-year-old, from Aurich, Germany, was struck by a car at full-speed which catapulted him off his motorcycle and sent him skidding across the road. He suffered a devastating brain injury when his head smashed on the tarmac, leaving him in a coma for a month.

When he woke up he did not recognise his family and was robbed of his memory and speech. Mr Roscher spent six months in hospital having daily sessions of physio – to learn to walk with a prosthetic – and speech therapy.

But he has miraculously returned to the gym and continued his six-day-a-week weightlifting regime. CONTINUE
