Sam Burrows in hospital after he was left paralysed from falling from a tree in May 2018.
A young angler has been left paralysed after he fell from a tree he had climbed to get a better view of fish in a lake.
Sam Burrows, 20, wanted to tell where he should cast his bait so scaled the 35ft tree to look for where the fish were swimming.
But he lost his grip and fell to the ground.
An angling friend called 999 and Sam was stretchered off the bank by paramedics.
The fall left him with a broken back and severed spinal cord. He had to have an 11 hour operation to pin his spine back in place.
