(East Anglian Daily Times) – A teenager who suffered a serious head injury in an accident at a Bury St Edmunds skate park has made a big step on the road to recovery after being taken off a ventilator in hospital.

Sid Hudson, aged 16, has been in Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge ever since the accident on July 14 where he hit his head and suffered a seizure at the skate park in Olding Road.

His parents Darrin and Kirsty and 10-year-old sister Leni have been at his bedside ever since.

In a post on the Bury St Edmunds Skate Park Experience Facebook page today (Tuesday July 28) the couple announced a ventilator tube had been removed on Monday and Sid was now breathing unaided. CONTINUE
