MetiNews.Com - Bristol musician Kdogg suffered life-changing injuries
Breaking News ! Almost two months ago, an NHS worker was mowed down in one of the most horrific suspected racially-aggravated attacks this city has witnessed. Today (Wednesday, September 16) new images have been released by detectives as they renew their appeal for witnesses to come forward. The NHS worker - who is known as K or Kdogg - was left with a broken leg, nose and cheek and terrible facial injuries which required plastic surgery and will leave him scarred for life as a result of the attempted murder. He was waiting at a bus stop, on Monks Park Avenue in Horfield, on his way home from work at Southmead Hospital when a car was driven towards him and knocked him into a wall. Police say two men from inside the vehicle ran off after shouting racist abuse, at around 4.30pm on Wednesday, July 22.

K, who is being supported by the charity Sari (Stand Against Racism & Inequality), previously said: "People came to help me off the wall I was on and I just remember bleeding. K-Dogg has been left with scars for the rest of his life "As I was helped off, I got laid on the floor and bandaged up. "I want to thank the people who helped me because of how quickly they responded and how they rang the emergency services because, obviously, if it wasn't for them I'm not sure if I would be here." Doctors would not show him the extent of injuries to his face in the hospital so he saw them for the first time when he went home.

"I was like 'Wow'. The doctor obviously said it's going to heal but I'm going to have this for the rest of my life - marks on my face for the rest of my life. "So just to know that this is literally going to be me for the rest of my life is obviously not nice." There is still grit and glass in his face which doctors are unable to remove. Before the incident, K kept himself fit by going to the gym and exercising. "The doctor also said, because I like exercising and stuff like that, if I wasn't such a fit person, I would have died at the scene," he said For news tailored to your local area, powered by In Your Area:
Fundraiser More than £58,000 has been donated to K by people in Bristol and around the world who wanted to help him. And £10,000 of the funds raised were donated by Bristol band Massive Attack. K is also popular member of a Bristol amateur football team in Frenchay, and in the days after the attack, its manager Simeon McCarthy set up a fundraising page. He said the money would be paid directly to Kdogg to help his recovery. "Kdogg has a long road ahead of him to recover physically and even longer mentally," Mr Mccarthy, from Fishponds, wrote.
