His wife Caroline revealed in a statement on Thursday that Mercer has suffered a broken heel, T12 vertebrae, a fracture to his larynx, as well as neck damage, and was unable to breathe unaided.

In a second update on Saturday, she added: “Steve is still in critical care and will be for a while yet. He’s still unable to fully breathe for himself, however the doctors are hopeful he may be able to try soon.”
