Declaraciones de Paul Shoesmith, su team manager
“Ok I need to let everyone know about Franck to stop the gossip and rumours. Franck had a heavy
crash at primrose corner in the Superstock practice. He was treated immediately by the fantastic circuit doctor at the track side. He was unconscious but vital signes were all good. He was sedated and put on a ventilator to look after him and he was soon airlifted to Belfast royal. The doctors main concern was head injury. The next few hours were difficult for us all but the hospital came back with news after his scans and told us that he did have a knock to the head and a bruise on the brain but nothing serious. They went on to tell us of his further injuries which they said were all revocable. He has a break in his neck which is not dangerous and will heal with no affect. Both arms have breaks. Both legs have breaks, he has a collapsed lung with is now inflated and doing well, some chest injury which will heal in time. Some breaks need surgery which they think will be done today as it’s easier on the body to do while he is sedated. He will be under sedation for at least another 72 hours to allow his body to settle into the natural healing process. Although these are terrible injuries, doctors say he will fully recover from this.Franck is in for a hard time in the coming months to keeps the bills paid and so on so I want to create a fund where we fellow racers and race fans can help h in his time of need and get him back out on a race bike again. I have been as accurate and truthful as I can be and I hope I have not stepped out of line at all in telling everyone the way it really is. As of late last night there had been no deterioration so all the signed are good.
We will speak to the hospital again this morning for an update”.
