On 8th March 1997, 15-year-old Danny set off on his bike to do his paper round.
An hour later, it was every parent's worst nightmare when two policemen knocked at Danny's parent's door to say that their son had been involved in an accident. Danny had been hit by a car and knocked off his bike. Sue, Danny's mum could hear the London's Air Ambulance helicopter flying overhead as she talked to the policeman.
Danny was placed in an induced coma to protect his brain before being airlifted to hospital. He had sustained a number of traumatic injuries including a fractured skull, bleed on the brain and a fractured collar bone.
Despite the severity of his injuries, Danny made an extraordinary recovery and was moved from intensive care after 4 days and back at home just a week after the accident. In the 22 years that have passed since his accident Danny has continued to fundraise and take part in events for London's Air Ambulance Charity. He is now married, with two little boys of his own.
"No words can express the thanks that we have for this amazing service"
