Ozzy Speaks Of Near Fatal Accident
Ozzy Osbourne has spoken for the first time since his quad bike accident last month, stating that hes lucky to be alive.
The rock legend has told how his bodyguard Sam Ruston saved his life twice after the accident at his Buckinghamshire mansion, by successfully giving him mouth-to-mouth when he stopped breathing.
"If it wasn't for Sam I probably wouldn't be here," said Ozzy. "He had to bring me back to life twice."
The 55-year-old former Black Sabbath frontman, who admitted to not wearing a helmet while on the bike, went on to say that the accident - that left him in a coma for eight days with broken ribs, a smashed collarbone, a punctured lung and a crushed vertebra in his neck " has taught him a few lessons.
"I'll never go near one of those damn bikes again. I've finally grown up," he said.
"The bloody thing nearly killed me. I am lucky to be here today and not paralysed."
