  1. Thanks for your response Janet, we will keep our fingers crossed that you are right and we hear nothing more.

  2. My husband and I were involved with this incident and wonder if anyone knows the outcome, whether the ladies survived or not? Any info would be much appreciated.

      There has been no further news from emergency services or hospitals, and this is nearly always a good sign that that the victim recovered … it really is a case, normally, of no news is good news!

  3. Best wishes to both ladies…..hope you both make a full recovery. xxxx
