After a horrific hit-and-run accident, doctors at Hull Royal Infirmary have removed part of teenager’s skull to save his life. A 16-year-old boy named Kiernan Roberts was hit by a 64-year-old drunk driver and was left on the road with a broken neck and head injuries.
According to the Metro, Kiernan’s mother Marie Roberts said: “As a family, we discussed releasing the images of Kiernan after the crash, and at first decided not to because once they are released you can’t get them back. He has also suffered massive distress due to his head disfigurement and we did not want to add to that.”
She further added: “But we want Finn to see what he has taken from Kiernan. We want him to see for himself what Kiernan has lost. We partly want Finn to see what he has done and not simply think he can dismiss it as a simple ‘bad thing’, as described by his defending barrister in court. We spoke to Kiernan who has chosen the images along with us.”
After the first operation, he failed to recognise his own family as the doctors removed the left side of his skull and again in December, he went another surgery to remove a build-up of fluid on the brain.
He was then left with mishappen head.
