Family Forced to Say Goodbye After Freak Trampoline Accident

Last month, Rob Harcourt, from Stockton, was seriously hurt after he tripped and fell into a trampoline while at a friend’s house.

Rob suffered a dislocated neck and kinked spinal cord following the fall, and doctors believed Rob would be paralyzed from the chest down. However, he has since suffered a cardiac arrest and had to undergo major surgery after doctors found fluid in his brain, remaining in the intensive care unit since he was admitted to the Hospital.

After being taken off sedation following the surgery, Rob was able to move his eyes. However, Rob was unable to wake up, with his family now learning he will not be able to recover.

At the time of his accident, a gofundme page was launched by friend Amanda Jones in the hopes of raising funds for Rob and his girlfriend, Jade, to help with his recovery once he returned from hospital. Despite meeting their financial goal, Rob’s brother, Alan, posted the tragic update:

“I’m afraid we have some really sad news. The consultants have today confirmed that Rob will not recover. His close friends and family have been invited to say their goodbyes. The doctors will then remove his tracheotomy and he will pass peacefully surrounded and wrapped in love by his first and last love – his mum and his partner”.


“Our thoughts are with Rob Jackie and Jade. Please keep them in your prayers x”
