Sam Cawthorn describes his survival and subsequent recovery from a car accident that should have claimed his life as a miracle.
The 26-year-old Launceston father was critically injured when the right-hand side of his car was sheared off in a collision with a truck on the Bass Highway earlier this month.
“You just look at the car and it’s amazing that I survived,” he said yesterday from his bed at the Launceston General Hospital. “It is a miracle that I’m still here.”
