OZZY COULD HAVE DIED AFTER QUAD CRASH, CLAIMS WIFE

Sharon Osbourne admits his wife was "very lucky" to have survived his accident...

Ozzy Osbourne could have died after his quad crash, his wife SHARON has claimed.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Ozzy Osbourne broke eight ribs, his collarbone and cracked a vertebra in his neck when he crashed his quad-bike on his Buckinghamshire estate on Monday (December 8). He was taken to the nearby Wexham Park Hospital where he had emergency surgery to correct the collarbone and fix damaged blood vessels.

Sharon has said that had it not been for Ozzy Osbourne’s security guard, things could’ve been a lot worse.

She told The Mirror newspaper today (December 12): “He has got horrendous injuries to his body. His whole body is traumatised. He was on his quad bike and he was just driving around our farmland. The ground was uneven and he fell off and the bike landed on top of him.

“He was very lucky as he was with his security guard. He had stopped breathing for a minute-and-a-half and there was no pulse. But thank god the security guard was there to revive him. He resuscitated him and got him breathing and his pulse going again. We are so, so grateful to him.”

Speaking yesterday to reporters, his daughter Kelly said that Ozzy Osbourne gave her the “thumbs up” from his bed.

She said: “He gave me the thumbs up and stuck his tongue out at me. He woke up today. He couldn’t talk because of the tube in his mouth but he was able to mouth words. He told us that he loved us. He has been complaining about the nurses so we know he’s all right. He was in a field and there was grass covering a hole and the bike went in the hole and fell on top of him.”
