as saltman says it sounds very serious

I will tell you what I have been told and I hope that it has been grossly exaggerated

It appears Daz was hit by a jetski and it was very serious, he had to be carried from the water and resuscitated at the scene by one of his mates Greenie. He had an operation last night I believe but there is talk it will be a few months before he will even be able to return to Oz. I was also told there was the risk of paralysis

Like I said I hope this is grossly exaggerated and my apologies to his family if it is.

Best wishes to him and his family for a FULL recovery

I was admiring his cutback and quad selection on other posts a few days ago. A mate and I where going to head down to the shop when he came back.

That is heavy news. Best of luck on the recovery and all the best to the family!
