THE parents of a teenager in intensive care say they just want to hear his voice again.

David Bromley, 19, remains critically injured in John Radcliffe Hospital after a horror smash in Newport Pagnell on Monday, March 7.

David’s parents Helen and Peter Bromley have kept a bedside vigil at the hospital as he recovers from the serious head injuries he sustained in the collision.

He had previously been playing football with friends and had arranged to meet his girlfriend close to his father’s home in Newport Pagnell, where he was staying.

After hearing about the accident, Mrs Bromley said: “I just wanted to get to him as quickly as I could, but when they did let us see him I wanted to run away. I couldn’t face it, it was very emotional. It was both shock and disbelief.

“I just want to give him a hug and hear his voice again.”

“He has severe head injuries including a fractured skull and has not been conscious since being taken to hospital.

“We talk to him though, every day, and hold his hand. He’s starting to look more like my boy now.

“He is not out of the woods yet but has been more stable over the past couple of days.

“On Monday night we didn’t think he would make it through the day. That was the hardest day for us. He’s a fighter.”

David’s family, inclduing his 14-year-old brother, have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from friends and family.

Mrs Bromley added: “David has so many friends wanting to come and see him.

“He’s got an amazing amount of messages on Facebook. They all say what a lovely person he is and how wonderful he is. They miss his jokes and his silly dancing.

“It is overwhelming.”
