The 21-year-old music who works with the NHS in the United Kingdom (UK) and was seriously injured by a car in a racially-aggravated attack is happy to still be alive.
The youngster stage-named K or K-Dogg was attacked while walking to the bus stop from his job at Southmead Hospital, Bristol.
Witnesses said a dark blue Honda Accord was deliberately driven at him before two men shouted racial abuse at him on July 22.
K had just said goodbye to a friend and had put his headphones on when he was hit by the car and thrown by the impact of the crash into the front garden of a house.
He said he remembered bleeding and people came to help him off the wall.
Then he said he was on the floor being bandaged up and could not work
after the incident and was bleeding profusely from his head.
His colleagues at Southmead Hospital treated for a broken leg, nose and cheekbone before undergoing plastic surgery.
He said no-one would show him the extent of his facial injuries in the hospital and he only saw them for the first time when he went home in the early hours of the following morning.
He clings to the doctor’s words that he will heal but dejected that about the marks on his face that he will carry forever.
Also, he was told by the doctors that if he had not been so physically fit, he would have died at the scene, as he thanked everyone who rushed to his aid”.
He said: “If it wasn’t for them, I’m not sure if I would be here.”
Police say the car was deliberately driven at him and have confirmed it is being treated as a racially-aggravated assault.
He said he was still scared and that the incident had not only affected him, but his family and friends as well.
