Manchester Terror Attack Survivor Still Bedbound In Hospital Two Years On
A teenager who was caught up in the 2017 terror attack at Manchester Arena is still bedbound more than two years later.
Ciaran Danson, now 15 years old, was not physically injured in the attack, but has since developed a disorder, which doctors believe could be related to PTSD. It causes him such severe pain hes unable to bear anyone touching him.
Danson, from Liverpool, developed shooting and burning pains in his left leg shortly after the attack which killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
The pain spread through Dansons body, leaving him wheelchair-bound. The teenager was later diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), which doctors say was triggered by post-traumatic stress disorder.
Ciaran is currently bedbound in hospital, having been admitted to Alder Hey Childrens Hospital in Liverpool.
According to MailOnline, Ciarans condition has caused him to hallucinate about the events of May 22, 2017, he still feels pain throughout his body and can hardly bear to even hug his mum because of it.
Talking about the night of the arena attack, Ciarans mum Lyndsay said:
Ciaran and Tegan were both huge Ariana Grande fans and this was their first concert.
I waved them off and they were so excited. Later in the night, Ciaran called me and there was a loud noise and then the phone went dead.
The next call was from my mum and she was hysterical. They had to run through bodies on the floor, they saw very serious injuries, and it was horrific for them.
Ciaran was separated from the group in the mayhem and he fell on the floor and was trampled. My mum found him 15 minutes later and he was in a real state.
Thankfully, Ciaran, his sister and grandmother survived, but were understandably traumatised by the horrific attack.
