Steelworker Michael Down sings with choir after horrific injuries

A steelworker who is lucky to be alive after suffering horrific injuries in an accident at work last year has performed again with his local choir.

Michael Down, of Kenfig Hill, Bridgend, had to be revived several times after becoming tangled in a machine at Port Talbot steelworks in August 2012.

Fifteen months on, the 64-year-old tenor has just performed with Kenfig Hill and District Male Voice Choir.

His wife Carol said doctors were astounded by his recovery.
