Deaf Man Could Lose Leg After Hit-and-Run

Hit-and-run victim left lying in road in Wales could lose leg.

NEWPORT, Wales -- A Deaf man could lose his leg after he was left lying in the road following a hit-and-run in Newport, Wales on Friday night.

Dean Cohen, 51, is in a serious but stable condition at hospital after undergoing a 12-hour skin graft operation in a bid to save his leg.

Mr Cohen, of Oliphant Circle, Newport, had only popped to the shop on Malpas Road when he was hit by a car when crossing the road near the BP garage. The car did not stop and Mr Cohen, who has been Deaf since contracting meningitis as a baby, was left bleeding on the road.

But fortunately a pair of Good Samaritans, Jenny Peacock and her husband Matthew from Newport, were driving along Malpas Road at around 7.50pm and stopped to help.

Mrs Peacock said they had pulled over to help the man, who was conscious but bleeding with a serious injury to his leg.

“We pulled him off the road and put him against the bus stop and waited for the police and an ambulance to arrive,” she said.

“It was awful – his skin was ripped open and he was in a lot of pain.

“He was Deaf so it was difficult to communicate with him.

“He kept signing that he had been hit by a car.”

The 35-year-old said neither she nor her husband had seen what had hit him and the victim himself could not remember what had happened.
