A family have issued a desperate plea for witnesses after Lee Rose was involved in a hit-and-run and had to be brought back to life three times.
Lee, 22, of Hainault, was coming back from a night out with a friend when he was knocked over.
His uncle, Charles Rose, said Lee was revived by a trainee nurse on the scene and underwent six hours of surgery at the Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel.
He said: “They [doctors] had to remove part of his skull. They are concerned about his whole left side.”
He added: “It’s been traumatising. We need to get the person that did this. We want them caught so they don’t do it to anyone else.”
