An emergency meeting of the IOW Family Practitioner Committee decided by a majority decision last night to send popular local doctor, Martin Pylegrove, 47, to Grenoble to support the physicians treating the injured former world champion racing driver.
Dr Pylegrove, known for his skillful mastery of the prescription pad and avuncular bedside manner, has spent may years tending to the residents of Hyde and is said to be very familiar with coma victims. He also has recent experience of the effects of concussion, having dealt with young Timmy Clitheroe when he banged his head on a tree whilst falling off his bicycle riding down West Hill Road. Timmy made a complete recovery under Dr Pylegrove, although sadly he collapsed and died two days later.
Speaking to the IOW News after the meeting, Dr Pylegrove admitted that he had not yet made contact with Mr Schumacher's doctors, but hoped to break the good news to them shortly.
