THE family of a young man who fell off his motorbike in Wrexham have been told he will never walk again.
Nathan Molyneux, 20, of Cefndre, Caia Park, is fighting for his life in hospital after he was found with grave injuries by a member of the public in a field near the Queensway Sports Centre.
He had come off his motorbike in the early hours of Wednesday morning. It is not known how long he had been there before paramedics arrived.
Speaking to the Leader yesterday Nathan’s auntie Lorraine Hughes – speaking on behalf of his distraught parents – said the family are “in bits”.
She said: “Nathan is very poorly and has been in theatre twice, once to have work done on his vital organs and once on his spine.
“We have already been told he will never walk again.
“He has had a lot of injuries, and has injured nearly every vital organ.
“He broke all the ribs on his left side, which punctured his lung, he’s damaged his kidneys, liver and aorta, which is one of the main arteries.”
Nathan is still being kept on life support in a specialist hospital unit in Stoke, after being transferred there from Wrexham Maelor Hospital.
Mrs Hughes said the family does not have a clear picture of what happened on Wednesday night, other than the fact Nathan came of his bike in the field.
“We are all in bits,” she said.
“His mum, brother and dad are totally wrecked.
“He’s my nephew and he is a gorgeous, lovely lad and I love him to bits.
“He loves his football – and is a big Arsenal fan – and loves his music, cars and of course his bikes.
“We are all just hoping and praying he comes through.”
Nathan’s mum Jayne Molyneux has been given accommodation at the hospital for five days and plans on staying at his bedside whenever she can.
The family have been told Nathan will not be woken for a couple of days and that it will be two months at the very least before he can be moved elsewhere.
North Wales Police said yesterday they are still looking for more information on the incident.
Det Sgt Anne Louise Jones from North Wales Police said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident of may have information that will assist us in our investigation to contact North Wales Police on 101.”
