james thorpeFIREMAN James Thorpe, 28, broke his neck and seven vertebrae after a paddling accident in Mallorca.

He is now paralysed from the chest down.

The British man was only three hours into his bachelor party weekend at the time of the incident.

Speaking with the Sun, James’s fiancee Michaela expressed grief, but reaffirmed her unconditional support of James in these trying times.

“I don’t care how long we have to wait, it is my dream to marry James. I just want to make sure he is better first,” she said.

James’s family hope to raise £20,000 to get him specialised care in the UK.
