28 Dec: Update on Tye Angland
Published: 27 Dec 2018 - - Author: Newsroom


The Australian Jockeys' Association has provided an update on injured jockey Tye Angland:

"As you are aware, Tye had a fall at Sha Tin, Hong Kong on Sunday 25 November following which he remained conscious throughout," the statement read.

"Tye underwent surgery at the Prince of Wales Hospital, Hong Kong where he remained in the Intensive Care Unit for two weeks. Following this, Tye was able to transfer to Sydney with the aid of a medical team.

"Since returning to Australia, Tye has undergone a second surgery for his injuries. Tye currently remains in Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney.

"As a result of the fall, Tye had a fracture and dislocation of the spine as well as a spinal cord injury. The spine has been stabilised and realigned.

"Tye's doctors advise the long-term prognosis for injuries of this nature are always hard to diagnose in the early stages. However, there remains a likelihood of Tye's outcome being quadriplegic.

"His wife Erin, and the couple's three children Alexis, Addison and Rylan have been overwhelmed by the support they have received and wish to say thank you to everyone who has reached out to them.

"The family has requested their privacy as they deal with this very difficult situation."
