Cara Sutton is a miracle! Fallen from a cliff, the young woman of English origin survived a fall of 20 meters.
Last August, Cara Sutton enjoyed a well-deserved vacation with her darling James. In the program ? A cycle tour through Coed-y-Brenin Forest in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. On her way to the waterfall, the young woman, originally from Aigburth in Liverpool, however, slipped at the edge of the cliff in front of her boyfriend’s eyes. Fortunately, the pharmacist who works at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital had kept her helmet on. A gesture that helped save his life despite his numerous injuries: the broken spine, the broken pelvis, a punctured lung and multiple broken ribs.
Chilled out at Royal Stoke University Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent, Cara landed in the trauma ward. “I remember James yelling at me to be careful because it was slipping, but I was already falling to my knees. I skidded and tried to catch myself on some foam but she finished in my hand. The edge of the cliff was behind me so I didn’t even realize I was going to fall until I fell backwards and saw the edge of the cliff pass in front of me. I didn’t don’t remember falling or hitting the ground,” Cara told the Daily Mirror.
A miracle rehabilitation
Quickly taken care of, Cara had to undergo several surgeries to repair her spine and heal her affected organs. The young woman spent more than two months in the hospital to relearn how to walk. Against all odds, she managed the feat of regaining the use of her legs. Five months after her accident, the pretty brunette finally returned home. “I could never thank the doctors and the paramedics who helped me enough. When I think back to what I went through, I tell myself that it’s incredible, especially since the other day I I walked 10,000 kilometers. I could have died but they saved my life.”
