‘Medical miracle’ 14-year-old boy walking four days after breaking neck on trampoline

Aiden Horsley has been dubbed a ‘medical miracle’ after breaking his neck and leaving doctors fearing he would be be paralysed for life.

The 14-year-old gymnast, who had qualified for the British Championships just days before his accident, broke his neck while training on a trampoline in his back garden in February 2017.
