Motivated tradie beats the odds
When talented, award winning Brisbane bricklayer, Ben Roche landed head-first onto concrete after falling over five metres from a collapsed scaffold in March 2017, his life hung in the balance and his future looked bleak.
Suffering from a severe brain injury, Ben was hospitalised for over two weeks and placed in an induced coma in intensive care for 10 days to reduce swelling on his brain.
In this video, Ben shares how he's getting his life back on track working in close partnership with his employer and talks about what motivates him to stay so focussed on his rehabilitation program and returning to meaningful work.
