Jobe Taylor-Davis’ family is thrilled and eternally thankful that the toddler survived the injuries he sustained when he was kicked by the family horse. It’s still upsetting to little Jobe’s parents when they think about that day.
The boy was only 16 months old when his mother’s horse kicked him at the family farm near Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, in September. That kick was dreadful, almost ending Jobe’s life, putting the toddler at death’s door.
Critically injured, the child was flown to Birmingham Children’s Hospital where a medical team was standing by to treat his two skull fractures and tend to him around the clock. Jobe Taylor-Davis’ life hung in the balance as he spent 13 long days in a deep coma.
The youngster’s strong constitution and perhaps the thousands and thousands of prayers said for him pulled him through. Though Jobe Taylor Davis nearly died from his horse kick ordeal, he has rallied and pulled through. He is an inspiring little fellow.
His family is thankful for the blessing of having their little boy today. He was kicked in the head so severely that he sustained a double fracture. That Jobe survived seems like a miracle.
Now Jobe Taylor-Davis’ family wishes to raise money in support of the hospital that enabled their son to live. His parents Helen and Ben said, “The hospital helped save his life.”
They said, “We now want to raise money to help other ill children.”
