'Recovering' Imran Khan tweets 'walking without braces'

Islamabad, July 14 (ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan has tweeted that his braces have come off and that he was walking without any external spinal-support.

Khan tweeted that he was feeling liberated after starting to walk without braces after almost 9 and a half weeks.

According to the Express Tribune, though the braces have come off, it is just one part of the long healing process.

Imran had suffered a potentially life threatening 14-foot-drop as he was being lifted onto the stage at an election rally in Lahore on May 7, 2013, the report said.

The fall damaged his spinal column and left cuts and bruises on his forehead. He spent at least two weeks in the hospital, recovering and three more weeks in bed rest at his home in Lahore, the report added. (ANI)
