Friends of Mike Patterson

by duncanr

mike-patterson-mum-vickie-1-522x293Mike Patterson dived into a creek to save a stranger’s 4yr old child from drowning. Sadly, the water was shallow and as a result he broke his neck in three places and severed his spine. He is now in intensive care and doctors have confirmed he is paralysed from the waist down. Mr Patterson has no health insurance. A Facebook page – Friends of Mike Patterson’ – has been set up for those who wish to make a contribution to help his family meet the cost of his care
