In the Survivors series of podcasts, we present four stories of survival, that chart four individuals’ journey back to wellness. They have faced physical and emotional trials that seem unimaginable. But each one has found their way through the trauma, and come to a place of healing, and better understanding.
JP was an average teenager who loved the water. His favourite pastime was surfing. It was the love of that hobby that killed him - literally. He was attacked by a shark as he surfed, fished out of the water by a fellow surfer. He died on the beach, but medics kept fighting and managed to revive him. He died in the ambulance on the way to hospital, but again they revived him. Doctors said he’d never come out of the coma. But he did. An incredibly wise 26 year old, he tells us how he dealt with losing his leg, and finding meaning in what happened to him.
