A man who fractured his pelvis after he fell while trying to escape from the Glass House fire has been told it has now fully healed.
Paul Miles slipped from the window ledge of his fourth floor flat on the corner of Marine Parade and Richmond Street, Sheerness, after it was set alight in June last year.
The 25-year-old also suffered three broken ribs, a broken sternum, punctured lung which led to a collapsed lung and internal bleeding.
His friends Kirsty Sawyer and Craig Monahan had been visiting at the time.
Miss Sawyer, 20, also fell after passing out on the window ledge. She suffered burns including to her throat and is still struggling with her breathing and voice. Mr Monahan was rescued by firefighters.
Doctors gave Mr Miles the good news last Wednesday that his pelvis had completely healed.
It was announced on a Facebook group set up to help the people affected by the Glass House fire by Paul’s mum Julie Ann Miles.
Police probing the arson attack on the Glass House building shelved their investigation in January after “exhausting all lines of inquiry”.
