(Hereford Times) – Max Redmond first started thinking about becoming a health professional about 10 years ago as he finished his graphic design, product design and business courses at Worcester Sixth Form College.
Becoming a paramedic was in the back of his mind but he soon took a warehouse job and started enjoying the independence from earning his own money. But the former Tudor Grange pupil’s life took a sudden dramatic turn while out following his passion for motorbike riding.
He was in mid-Wales with a group of his biking enthusiast friends when he was involved in a major accident that was to change his life. He was just 20. While riding through an S bend on a road in Powys, he had to brake suddenly and his bike shot away from under him sending him careering into an oncoming car. He was wedged under the vehicle with serious injuries.
He had been riding since the age of 16 and it was his first crash. It left him with a broken pelvis, shattered left hip, a head injury, broken arm, broken jaw, internal bleeding and ligament damage to his right knee. CONTINUE
