An NHS worker has survived a racially aggravated attack after he was run down by a vehicle driven by a group of racist thugs.
The 21-year-old victim, who does not want to be named, was walking home from work when the attack took place.
Witnesses heard two men hurling racist abuse at the victim as they purposely collided with him in a Honda Accord, which was later ditched.
The young man has since said: ‘I have six months’ recovery ahead of me, minimum. I have a broken leg, nose and cheekbone, will need plastic surgery to my face and leg and am walking on crutches.
‘I don’t want this to happen to anyone else, I want people to be aware.’
The incident happened near Southmead Hospital, Bristol, last Wednesday at around 4.30pm and is being treated as a racially aggravated incident.
He continued: ‘I don’t feel safe to walk outside and I can’t play football, record my music, go to the gym or even sleep – I have to try to sleep sitting up.
‘We will bounce back as a family, this will make us stronger. We won’t let the haters win.’
