Cellist almost loses arm to blindsided truckmain
An orchestral cellist, Laura Armstrong, has told a London court how surgeons almost amputed her arm after it was trapped and wrecked by a turning truck.
Laura, 25, was cycling in east London, on her way to meet friends for lunch.
She was studying for a masters at the time with Raphael Wallfisch.
She said: “I have very little feeling in my right hand and limited movement in my arm and my greatest challenge is not knowing what the future holds for my career and if I will be able to become a cellist.
“I have an incredible professor, Raphael Wallfisch, and the Royal College of Music has helped me throughout my recovery. Music is hugely important to me so I am determined to keep trying.”
