Leslie Crowther 'critical' after second operation
Tuesday 06 October 1992
David Sandeman, the neurosurgeon, said after the operation: 'In this sort of situation, which is dreadfully serious, there is a real risk of him not coming through.'
Mr Crowther, 59, suffered severe head injuries in a weekend car crash on the M5 near Cheltenham when his Rolls-Royce careered from the road. He remains on a life support system in Frenchay Hospital, Bristol.
Mr Sandeman, who carried out both operations, warned that the next few hours and days would be crucial as Mr Crowther's condition was complicated by a heart problem.
