Sayle moves out of critical care

Sulby rider involved in serious crash last month

Injured local racer Dan Sayle has now moved out of critical care.

He sustained head, chest and spinal injuries in a crash at Ballaspur during the Lightweight race on Saturday 25 August, and was transferred to a hospital in Liverpool for treatment.

The Sulby man was originally described as in a 'serious' condition, and was sedated until last week (Thurs 6) when he was woken.

Then, on Monday (10), the joint most successful TT passenger ever was described as talking, breathing, and moving unaided.

A further update from loved ones on social media yesterday (Wed 12) said he was showing more signs of improvement.

Thanks were extended to all the well-wishers who have shown love and support, and also to "the best hospital we could ever have wished for".
