Not really. Without substantive evidence of how he was hit, how he fell and how his head was impacted then the fact he was wearing a helmet may well be irrelevant to his survival.
Great news that he’s recovering though!Posted 4 years ago
There was a 2nd child involved in this, he escaped with cuts and bruises, as I know the people involved and the incident.
big sigh of relief he’s up and about. Despite a lot of issues with the NHS in the press, they were absolutely fantastic.

Great news, must have been an awful time for his family. Hope he goes on to make a full recovery!
One thing did puzzle me about the report though:
“Harry had been riding his friend’s bike along the road, which does not have a pavement, when he was struck by the van.”
How is a pavement relevant? Just a bit of an odd paragraph.Posted 4 years ago
its kind of a semi rural road which has marked lanes, 2 cars can pass ok, anything more requires a bit of savvy. some very long straight sections good visibility at all points.
no other oncoming cars were involved and on a straight section.
for the family the terrible thing was when they first tried to revive him, it did not go at all well, and had to repeat putting him back into a coma!Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber

Without a pavement he’d have been unable to illegally ride on it.
It’s a terribly written article all round, really. Take this:
Harry Davies, 11, from Pencaitland, was in a medically-induced coma for two weeks at The Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.
He was knocked down by a van on the B6363 Boggs Holdings road on 3 June.
His mother Lisa Davies told the BBC Scotland news website that he had been “making everybody laugh”.
Someone should have words with his mother, laughing at her son in a coma.Posted 4 years ago
