Lucky Or What?

When I was a child, I remember looking through thousands of clovers to find a single 4 leaf "Good Luck" Clover.One of my aunts would walk up and just pick one...This guy had never seen one.

None of Raymond Curry's major organs were damaged despite him being impaled on a fence post in Northumberland

A four-leaf clover was found stuck to the back of a driver who survived a crash which left him impaled on a post.

Raymond Curry, 20, was driving his Vauxhall Corsa when it overturned and rolled through a fence near his home in Cramlington, Northumberland.

He was flown to hospital still impaled on the piece of wood, which had missed all his vital organs.

Doctors later found the clover - a symbol of good luck - stuck to his back under his clothes.

Two other fence posts had pierced the wrecked hatchback car, but missed him by inches.

Mr Curry underwent surgery to have the stake and part of his bowel removed.
He said: "I know how lucky I am to be alive.

I'd never even seen a four-leaf clover until this happened, so it was good timing I suppose."

Paramedic Jane Peacock, from the Great North Air Ambulance, treated Mr Curry at the scene.

She said: "It gave me a good chuckle when I heard afterwards about the four-leaf clover.

"At the scene he was stable, but you do not know what is happening internally. I am delighted he has done so well.

"The fence posts had impaled him. He was absolutely remarkable as he was fully conscious."

The four-leaf clover is now mounted on Mr Curry's bedroom wall following the crash on 13 June.
