Chris Meehan, the jockey who made headlines when run over by an ambulance earlier this year, has broken his leg again in a trampoline accident.

The Irish rider was in the news in July when the ambulance sent to treat him after a fall at Merano racecourse in Italy reversed over his leg.

Meehan was knocked unconscious in the fall and needed 27 stitches to a gash along his jaw, but those injuries paled into insignificance when the ambulance’s manoeuvre broke his leg.

The rider has spent the summer recovering and was aiming to return to action on the Flat, spending the last few weeks riding out again.

But he took a misstep on a trampoline being used as part of his training regime and broke his leg again.

“I was just doing a bit of circuit fitness work and landed on the wrong leg and it snapped in exactly the same place as before,” Meehan said.

“When I got out of the cast two months ago, they (doctors) told me if I break my leg again it would be a straight operation.

“I’m going on Thursday morning to have X-rays and to get my cast changed over, so I’ll know a lot more then.

“I’m absolutely gutted – heartbroken, to be fair.”
