Liverpool debate prompted New Zealand handcyclist Ian Walker to wake up from a coma

Liverpool & New Zealand handcyclist Ian Walker

An amazing story involving Liverpool FC has been revealed this week on New Zealand’s Sport Radio.

On Thursday, Kiwi handcyclist Ian Walker rang up the show to reveal how Liverpool chat helped him wake up from a coma.

Who is Ian Walker?

No, we’re not talking about the former Tottenham keeper.

This Ian Walker is a huge Liverpool supporter.

He became a paraplegic around 10 years ago following an accident with a truck.

He’s since turned his attentions to handcycling, however he was recently involved in another scary accident.

On this occasion he was hit by an SUV, which left Walker fighting for his life in a coma.

How Liverpool FC woke him up

Ian Walker told the following account on Radio Sport:

I wanted to say thank you very much because they were trying to get me to wake up in ICU.

They tried talking to me…and then they actually played a bit of Radio Sport on with you about Liverpool’s trials and tribulations a couple of weeks ago.

And apparently you made mention of the word Liverpool and I didn’t sit straight up but I clenched my mouth, pumped my fist and then I started waking up an hour later. So a lot of it goes down to you Mr Pine.
