A man has miraculously cheated death after being hit by a 15 tonne lorry - leaving him so badly injured his insides were left strewn across the road.
Lewis Godfrey, 23, suffered such horrendous injuries that doctors on the scene pronounced him dead twice.
A team of 34 doctors and nurses were called in to save his life after he was rushed to hospital with his body parts held together in a blanket.

Lewis Godfrey has miraculously cheated death after being hit by a 15 tonne lorry - leaving him so badly injured his insides were left strewn across the road

He had a substantial head injury and his skin had been ripped off his body in a band about a foot wide. His bowel had been damaged and his bladder ripped off.
Mr Godfrey, from Loughborough, Leicestershire, went on to spend 16 days in a coma. He was expected never to walk again and to have brain damage.

As well as suffering a substantial head injury, his skin had been ripped off his body in a band about a foot wide

But five months after the horror smash, he has made a full recovery.
He said: 'It has taken a while for everything to sink in. Sometimes I can’t believe I’m here. I can’t remember anything from the fight or the accident, but I am really shocked when my dad tells me bits about what happened.
'I think it’s probably just as well I can’t remember anything. I was gutted when the doctors told me I would never walk again, but I was just glad to be here.
'I was determined to get my life back on track now, and with the help of a lot of people, I’m now able to walk around again.'

Mr Godfrey, a cable technician, also had his bladder ripped off and suffered bowel damage and a broken pelvis

Mr Godfrey, a cable technician, was on a night out on June 2 when he was attacked by a group of men - who punched him in the head and pushed him into the road, where he was dragged under the wheels of a lorry.
He continued to be dragged along as the truck as the driver was unaware he had hit someone,
A doctor pronounced Mr Godfrey dead at the scene after his heart had stopped beating - but incredibly, he came back to life.
In the ambulance - as his body was held together by a blanket - his heart stopped again, but paramedics battled to restart it.
He suffered from huge blood loss, severe head injuries, a broken pelvis and ripped all of the muscle off his upper right leg.
A titanium plate was inserted into his skull to keep the shape of the head relatively normal.
