Trailer horror woman on mend.(News)
A WOMAN badly hurt when she was hit by a trailer that broke loose from a van is still in intensive care.
Sylvia Norburn, 61, of Monkswood Crescent, Henley Green, Coventry, remains in intensive care at Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital more than a month after the freak accident.
She was hit by the trailer as she walked along Deedmore Road in Wood End, Coventry towards the Moat House Primary School where she works as a dinner lady. The trailer pinned her to the school fence.
She is slowly recovering from her injuries which include wounds, fractures and a head injuries.
Pupils at the Moat House Primary School have been sending her cards.
Her husband Colin said: "She's better than she was. She can understand what is being said to her but she can't talk which is quite frustrating for her. She's always been an active woman and it's quite difficult for her to lie there doing nothing.
"She's had plenty of cards. She's had lots of cards from the kids at the school. I read them all out to her at the hospital. She can't have flowers while she is intensive care. She will be able to when she moves into a general ward but we don't know yet when that will be.
"It's going to be a long process but she is a very strong willed woman."
Mrs Norburn survived a heart attack nine years ago and overcame cancer last year.
Coventry Police are investigating the accident which took place on July 18.
