Mower dad left deaf by a twig


A Dad was left deaf in one ear and needing a walking stick after a twig spiked his eardrum as he mowed the lawn.

Mike Watson, 56, brushed past a bush and a branch poked into his right ear, knocking him out for several minutes.

Mike, who has five kids, managed to crawl indoors and dial 999. He was rushed to hospital with a four inch piece of twig still sticking out of his ear. But despite emergency surgery he lost his hearing and now can’t balance properly. Mike said, “It was horrific, a billion-to-one chance. The doctor said it was the worst ear damage he’d seen”.
