Seven As for Ross Nesbitt ski accident boy given 1% chance of full recovery



A teenager who was given a 1% chance of full recovery after a skiing accident has achieved seven As in his exams.

 
Ross Nesbitt, 16, was training with Glasgow ski racing team in Austria in December 2016 when he crashed and hit his head on a fence post, leaving him in a coma.


He spent a month in hospital in Innsbruck and a further six-and-a-half weeks in Scottish hospitals.


He had to learn how to walk, talk and eat again.


Ross returned to Williamwood High School in Clarkston, East Renfrewshire, in May last year and is now celebrating seven As and a B in his National 5 exams.
He said: "I was pretty pleased, I was really not expecting that, but happy to get the results."
