George learns of efforts for his return

ROCKHAMPTON man George Dobson, who lost the use of his arms and legs when he broke his back in a fall on an Indian mountain, has learnt for the first time about the effort to bring him home.

His ex-wife Therese, who flew to his bedside in New Delhi this week, revealed in an email to her daughter Liz yesterday that he was shocked to discover that $57,000 had been donated in three days.

Therese wrote: “Dad continues to improve according to the medical staff. Yesterday he was getting very frustrated at not being able to speak to me, so I grabbed a piece of paper and pen and asked him to nod as I went through the alphabet.

“He wanted to know how you all were and then about the appeal. He asked again how much was raised and when I told him he had such a look of surprise on his face. I think it is only now beginning to sink in.”

There's no hint yet when he will be flown home by white knight company, Mondial Assistance.
