About One Punch UK

How it all began: Kristian’s story

Kristian was a fit, healthy and happy 18 year old who was assaulted in September 2010 and sustained a catastrophic brain injury. He was in a coma for 7 days, which he miraculously came out of and was back on the road to recovery, although his behaviour was affected due to front lobe brain damage.

We fought to get him into the best rehabilitation unit, based in Northampton, and carried out fund raising to help his family and friends visit him. Initially we though he was doing ok and were waiting for plates to be put into his skull before full rehabilitation could take place. After two months of being at the unit he started to lose weight and had little interest.

I became extremely worried about him and kept expressing my concerns to anyone and everyone that would listen. I visited every weekend and his friends visited once a month. We truly believed we would get him home. My brave beautiful son died on 10th July 2011, he was only 19. We have tirelessly campaigned for 2 years to get the justice Kristian deserves.
