Emily Eccles was left holding her jaw in her hands after a riding accident1 min read


15-year-old Emily Eccles was left with injuries so bad that her surgeon described it as the “worst he’d seen outside a war zone”. She was out riding for the first time when an accident split her jaw in two.

She underwent reconstructive surgery at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, and has made a fast recovery.

Emily, her mum and her doctor Ricardo Mohammed-Ali told BBC Breakfast what happened.
