A man who was taken to hospital after being trapped under a lorry has come out of his induced coma.

Last week we reported how the man, believed to be in his 50s and from Sheppey, was taken to King’s College Hospital, London, after suffering serious injuries to his chest and abdomen.

It happened after he got trapped beneath a car transporter at DF Services Kent in Cullet Drive, Rushenden, last Monday.

A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive, which has taken over the investigation from police, confirmed it is ongoing and is expected to take some time.

The spokesman said the most recent update they had received, a few days ago, was that the man had come out of an induced coma and reports are that his condition is improving.
