I would have been paralysed

Heading down the freeway, a few hours away from Christchurch and in the middle of 'no-where'. A campervan lost its control and hit us in a head on collision. The car behind slamed straight into the rear of our car, and our car was sent spiralong. All three cars burst into flames. Amongst many injuries, my neck was broken in 3 places. I had no idea.
The paramedic took no chances, he immediately put my neck into a brace, stabilised me and put me on the Chopper off to Christchurch Hospital. If it wasn't for this wonderful person, I would have been a quadriplegic. That was nearly 9 years ago now (January 2005) - and I've never forgotten, and I'm eternally grateful with all my heart :)
