Lionheart releases a statement...
- The official Facebook page for PCW has released a statement from Lionheart on his injury. You can read his full statement below:
Words cannot describe the physical and emotional roller coaster of the past 30+ hours...
To update, my neck is broken in 2 places. I have had an MRI and the positive spin is there is no immediate requirement for surgery, although that may change...
I don't want to bore anyone or appear to fish for sympathy as I will comment more in depth in time... All I want to say is that the outpouring of support, calls, messages etc has been truly overwhelming... Reading them all has reduced me to tears more times than I can count... I thank you, and I love you... I know not what the future holds, and as emotional and drained as I am, I will fight back from this...

Thanks for all the messages of concern. Lionheart is his usual grumpy self so thats a good sign. He has movement in his arms and legs. 1/2
