Bad news indeed, don't know the guy but that makes no difference, it's still not nice to hear.

As an aside, I used to live with a girl who was a nurse in Intensive Care, really makes you think hearing some of the terrible stories of tragedy, and brings it home how fragile life is. Mind how you go out there please, all of you. And get well soon John.

It is one of the many great things about our world, people care weather they know you personally or not. John Bunce is a one off (another thing our world is good at) and to show you that I do not use the term loosely.

Back in the day he would also go on real jungle expeditions for a couple of weeks every year. John is a survivor every sense of the word. Get well soon John.

A dreadful thing to happen to anyone and shows how life can change forever in an instant. I don't know him but the stories told here show that if anyone can fight back it will be him.
