As many may know Lifecycle identity Josie Loane was involved in a serious accident last Wednesday. She had finshed taking the regular lifecycle shop ride around Mt Cootha and Josie was heading home to get changed for work at the shop when she had a collision with a car while going down the hill from Ashgrove West. She suffered serious chest injuries including multiple broken ribs and lung damage. It was only due to the prompt action of paramedics that she survived. In an amazing coincidence,if there is such a thing, the same paramedics had been in the shop talking to Josie about bikes the previous day!
Josie was transferred to the intensive care unit at the RBH with a couple of anxious days for family and friends. The good news is that she has made remarkable progress and is back in the ward although still has a drain from her lungs and a drip in her arm. It is a great testament to her fitness and courage that she is doing so well.
She has appreciated all the vistors and best wishes she has received from locally and all around the world. Knowing Josie she will be back on deck before you know it!
