<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
But he lost his grip and fell to the ground.<br />
<br />
An angling friend called 999 and Sam was stretchered off the bank by paramedics.<br />
<br />
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.
