Tylicki suffers paralysis to lower half of body after Kempton fall
Freddy Tylicki has suffered paralysis to the lower half of his body after his fall at Kempton on Monday, it was revealed on Friday evening.
Tylicki was one of four jockeys to come down in a pile-up at the track and was airlifted to St George's hospital in Tooting, south London, where he has been receiving treatment.
Initial reports suggested Tylicki had suffered spinal injuries, and they were confirmed in a statement released on his behalf by the Injured Jockeys Fund.
It read: "After his fall at Kempton Park earlier this week, Freddy Tylicki was transferred to St George's Hospital in London, where he has since undergone surgery to his spine.
"His surgical team have confirmed that Freddy has a T7 paralysis, which means he has movement in the upper half of his body but not his lower."
Tylicki remains in intensive care and is not receiving any visitors for the foreseeable future.
The statement added: "His family would like to thank the St George’s staff for the care he has received. As this is a very difficult time for Freddy and his family, they would like to thank everyone for their good wishes."
