My wife was left fighting for life after bike accident
A HUSBAND described his panic seeing his wife critically ill after she was in an accident on her bike.
Jianhong Guan was called to Southampton Hospital after his wife Fan Wu suffered serious head injuries.
The 47-year-old doctor from Charminster, Bournemouth, said: “Two police officers rang the doorbell. I was panicked.
“We went to Southampton and she was unconscious. I tried to kiss her and spoke to her gently.
“Fortunately the CT scan didn’t show any fractures or internal bleeding. This is very, very important.”
Fan Wu, also 47, is now in a stable condition at Poole Hospital and is conscious and recovering from her injuries.
She suffered two deep gashes to the top of the right hand side of her head, broken teeth and a cut mouth, and had deep bruising all over her body.
She was cycling to work in a care home when she was in collision with a Peugeot 207 at the junction of Princess Road and Prince of Wales Road in Westbourne.
Police closed the road after the accident around 7.25pm on Wednesday, September 26.
As she came round, she kept insisting in her confused state that she had to get to work.
“The doctors she said was very strong, and very brave,” said Mr Guan.
“At the moment it’s still very hard for her. She is in a lot of pain.
“The police didn’t know much.
“They said maybe she was cycling and the car hit her on the side and she was thrown in the air and hit her head but they needed more evidence to understand what happened.”
Mr Guan runs the Chinese medicine shop Medical Art on Holdenhurst Road in Springbourne. Customers know him as ‘Dr John’.
The couple were hoping to fly to China next month to visit their parents but are waiting to see if San Wu can make the trip.
Their daughter is completing her final year studying biochemistry at Imperial College in London. Witnesses can contact Dorset Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
