Injured trainer’s condition continues to improve

Doctors have removed Bruce Purcell’s breathing tube as the injured trainer’s condition continues to improve after a life-threatening accident at Cranbourne earlier this month.

Purcell was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital in a critical condition on 12th July after a freak incident involving one of his horses.

While he remains in intensive care with swelling on the brain and multiple fractures to the body and face, the 76-year-old is taking small steps towards recovery.

“Bruce has had his breathing tube removed and is trying to talk,” a spokesperson from the Purcell family said.

“It’s a huge relief.

“He has a long way to go but he is doing a great job.

“We’d like to thank everyone for the ongoing love and support.”
