A wonderfully uplifting story of a man who suffered shocking injuries in a motorbike crash – and has now bounced back to return to serving the community as a firefighter.

The BBC reports:

A motorbike racer who was almost killed in a crash on the Isle of Man has described returning to his job as a firefighter as a “fantastic feeling”.

Ivan Lintin, 36, from Lincolnshire was involved in a four-bike accident in the Southern 100 races in July 2018, which killed his friend James Cowton.

He was placed in a coma and airlifted to a brain injuries unit in Liverpool.

After learning to walk again, he has passed a fitness test to return to his role as a part-time firefighter.
