Family 'amazed' by son who survived being hit by train

Daily Echo: A train at Millbrook. Picture by Markus Berg A train at Millbrook. Picture by Markus Berg

THE PARENTS of a Hampshire man who survived being hit by a train have spoken of their son's 'miracle' escape.

As previously reported, Ian Willard, 29, was hit by a train travelling between Southampton Central and Totton. Transport police believe he had been walking alongside the tracks near Millbrook station when he was struck by the train on Friday evening.

Mum Sylvia Willard, 51, of Whitehouse Gardens, Millbrook, Southampton, said the family had been left in shock.

But she said doctors at Southampton General Hospital had been “amazed” by his “remarkable” recovery after having his arm amputated.

She said doctors told her the train had been travelling at up to 55mph.

Ms Willard said her son was struck on the left side and fell to the ground. It is not clear why he had put himself in such danger.

She said he suffered internal bleeding and a fractured bone in the head and serious injuries to his arm, which required it to be amputated at the shoulder.

“It’s just awful,” she said. “It’s a life-changing situation. He has been informed but I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. All I know is we’ve got a long road ahead of us to rebuild his life.”

She said last night her son was sitting up in bed and eating but was still very confused about what happened, believing he may have been struck by a car or been in a fight.

“He has recovered remarkably,”

she said. “The doctors are amazed he’s made such a good recovery.”

Mr Willard, who is originally from Hythe but had moved to Millbrook, used to run a garden pond business, but has been unemployed recently.

Services between Southampton Central and Brockenhurst were halted while police and paramedics attended. Passengers were initially told that a trespasser on the tracks had died.

A spokesman for British Transport Police said that Mr Willard was in a “stable condition”

and “improving”.

He said officers were trying to establish why he was walking alongside the tracks at the time but would wait until he has made a fuller recovery before speaking to him.

The tracks were handed back to Network Rail at 8.48pm.

Anyone with information can call British Transport Police on 0800 405040, quoting reference 537 of November 23.

Very lucky to be alive.

Just a thought from a reader who rarely posts here, maybe before reporting a death on a quiet friday evening you could check your facts first. Putting your career aside for 5 minutes to gain factual information is the very least we should expect from a local newspaper.

Luckily he survived, but why was he there in the first place?

I think that's what the police will be looking to ascertain Sherlock.

I'm sure they'll be glad for your sharp comments though.

Hope hes ok but given he doesnt work for the Rail or BTP he was tresspassing by being on the tracks and therefore could only have been either:

1. Walking home (short cut ?)

2. Graffiti artist out tagging

3. Looking to rob cable to weigh in.

Fingers crossed for the lads recovery but hope this now puts others off.

What is dumb about that? He shouldn't have been there but he was and he suffered the inevitable consequences that any reasonable adult could predict would happen. He may have been drunk, he may have been stoned, he may have been depressed, he may have been psychotic, but you seem to think that there may be some entirely innocent explanation why a man would walk down busy railway tracks without even looking to see if a train was coming. I guess you prefer to sit in your armchair being spoon fed by officialdom but others are capable of talking about things for themselves.

I wish if the echo are going to print a report like this they would highlight the dangers of walking along railway tracks. Ok its a mystery why he was there and a sad story but the main theme should be don't do it. However in hind sight when I was about 10 me and my mates used to play along the railway tracks near Mount Pleasant and the River Itchen. (Steam trains in them days) What an idiot I was. Still I'd like to think I'll stay well clear of them now at 54 years.

Here, There says...

If its a shortcut home a train travelling at 55mph does not creep up on you so can be avoided drunk, stoned or otherwise, "tagging" as far as I know is normally on stationary trains, If robbing cable the same as above would apply that you would be aware it was coming and thus avoid the train, unless of course, you didnt want to !

I feel personal thoughts and speculation on this should be kept just that.

Bottom line is this is a Son who has had life changing injuries and now needs to recover with his families love in their own time and space.

Regardless of reasons it is a miracle he survived and my thoughts, as a human being, are with him and his family now.

May have, may have and may have. The fact is he was and was hit by a train. There are I'm sure many reasons as to why, and we may or may not ever know the answer to that but I wish more people would remember that old chestnut of a saying "there but for the grace of god (who ever you may see her to be) go I.
I would have expected better from you.

How about train drivers who shouldn't have to come home from a innocent shift at work and then subsequently suffer from years of sleepless nights, panic attacks, depression and inability to work as a result of hitting and injurying / killing a tresspasser on the tracks (be it drunk, suicide, graffiti artist or theif).

There no go zones and no public access areas because of the dangers of trains and 3rd rails etc.

Thoughts with the lad and family but "it is what it is"...........he shouldnt have been there and was breaking the law by doing so regardless of what he was up to.

Would the same level of compassion be shown if he been found with a bag of cut up cable with him or goods from within a container at freightliners ?...... or if he'd been eastern european with the above on him ?

If hed walked into a Lion encolsure at Marwell you'd be calling him a daft idiot.

No. I think we'll reserve that title for you.
What the frig has the nationality got to do with it? Are you hiding something? Do you need to get it off your chest? "It is what it is". Yes I agree, but that doesn't make it any less harrowing for those involved does it? You have a lot to learn. I hope you live long enough to at least make a start on learning it.

I dont discriminate - Being on a live track is tresspassing and dangerous tresspassing at that no matter what you look like / come from.

Under NO circumstances should anyone endanger the lives of others by being on the line.

Under NO circumstances should an ordinary joe / family man just doing his job have to live with the memory / guilt / after effects of hitting someone who should not have been there.

Railworkers have to periodically go on track awareness courses and stick to strict proceedures when working trackside due to the inherint dangers.

Anyone who thinks they can just enter a restricred area, unauthorised is either up to no good or plain stupid.

There is no excuse for it be it robbing cable, walking home or rescuing a sick kitten.

Steve as someone who lived down that way for a large part of my life what the hell was he doing there?
short cut?
Now unless he's walked off of Millbrook station to walk where?
just as quick & safer to walk alongside Millbrook rd.
if heading for town there's a track behind a fence that leads to town.
as far as I remember those tracks are electrified aren't they?
is all the story being told? was it a suicide attempt or was he just stoned/drunk . Sorry but if the latter I can't see why we should be sad for him or his family.
If suicide was the intention them YES the guy needs help but the last thing he would need is to be in the Echo

Sorry retard? did I deliberately walk near electrified lines?
Sorry if I find no compassion but what are we being told by the Echo?
he went to walk by the rail tracks between Millbrook & Totton?
The only way to get near those tracks is to climb fences or get down from the platform with out touching the electric tracks. so unless you can shed light on why he did it I can't feel sympathy.
If as I've suggested this was a suicide attempt then yes I feel for him but an article in the paper feeling sorry for his family isn't going to cut it is it.
It shouldn't have even been reported if that's indeed what it was & from some one who's brother committed suicide even though we saved him once this guy needs help right now not paper articles.
So if you have any genuine information on this we have to go by it being some guy trying to take a short cut alongside electrified lines & if that's so I have no sympathy for him

I see the local social retards are on the prowl again. You lot must make your families so proud of you. I suppose it's not enough that he was seriously hurt, no, you need to grind him into the dirt, just that little bit more. Heroes, all of you.

Hey loosehead. I don't suppose by any chance you have anything to do with wealth and safety do you? Please be assured that I will show you the same degree of sympathy and understanding that you have demonstrated if anything unfortunate should happen to you..........Heaven forbid.

Thats the trouble now,trains DO creep up on you. I have worked on the tracks for 20 years and long gone are the early warning sounds i.e. clickety clack clickety clack as the train travels over the joints,we have miles of CWR (continous welded rail) now,and with extranous noise (like road traffic,wind or aircraft) it is very easy for a train to be virtually on top of you before you know it. Also,obviously, the trains themselves are very quiet now,we really have to be alert these days.
Regardless of the reasons why this chap was on the railway,I hope he and his family can get through this,best wishes.

Now is not the time to publicly show or write about your total lack of sympathy for another persons plight. As you have lost somebody near and very dear, I would have thought you would show at least some compassion and reined it in a bit. I apologise if you are offended by the social retard comment. I totally agree with Stillness.

Look I see no reason for you to attack people like me when surely this guy was breaking the law & for what?
A Short Cut?
what Short Cut?
either this article should have never been printed( in case of attempted suicide) or the guy & his family shouldn't expect any sympathy for attempting to break the law.
would you feel sorry for him/them if he was burgling your home & fell out of a window & survived?
they're both breaking the law so sorry unless proven to be more than a Short Cut I think he4 got just punishment

I wouldn't bother trying to reason with certain people on here loosehead, I expressed a similar view to you on the original article which was met with the predictable juvenile abuse from certain quarters. The bottom line is the guy was trespassing and got hurt as a result of his own stupid actions, my sympathies are with the train driver and every other innocent person affected by this individuals behaviour.

Why can't you have sympathy for all those involved? Oh hang on, that would mean missing an opportunity to play judge and jury wouldn't it. Try imagining (I think you would be good at that) that it was a member of your family. I think we would have to wait a very long time before we saw a post from you on here saying that the member of your family was hurt due to to their own stupid actions. Try to observe without judging, it's quite refreshing.

I wouldnt have thought that this guys family are too worried about sympathy from you at the moment.
"I think he got just punishment' that single statement tells me everything I would ever really want to know about your character.
In all your comments you display a distinct lack of compassion and are highly judgemental. Leads me to the conclusion that throughout your life you have probably struggled to acquire true friendship as hard as you tried (probably too hard - needy and pest like) likely to have been bullied as a child which has continued through to adulthood leaving you with
very low self esteem which you try to counter by positioning yourself as some kind of mock authority in the work place (union rep, H&S etc) or attempting to be some kind of social authority by making unfounded suppositions on individuals and situations you read about on Internet forums.
Pathetic.

Seriously ....I can not believe what comments people are writing! So cold and heartless "he should be charged...he was breaking the law" ...Do you not think he is paying for it enough at the moment?
For the people putting horrible comments on here that don't know him ..please think about it, its someones life!! Of course he wasnt in the right frame of mind to be near the tracks in the first place but lets all stop guessing hey especially those who didnt know him. Talk about kicking someone when they're down.

All my thoughts are with Ian and his family and I hope he makes a quick recovery and gets his life back on track.

Talk about kicking someone when they're down. All my thoughts are with Ian and his family and I hope he makes a quick recovery and gets his life back on track. 09123456

Yes well done to all the medics involved. True heroes on a daily basis.

I'd also like to know when the daily echo will actually print this report in a consistent manner.

Firstly the chap is dead, then he's alive.

Services started running just after 9pm then reported today at 8.48pm.

His age was 39 now 29 so lost 10 years in hospital.

How this paper manages to win any awards is simply ludicrous.

I see the local social retards are on the prowl again. You lot must make your families so proud of you. I suppose it's not enough that he was seriously hurt, no, you need to grind him into the dirt, just that little bit more. Heroes, all of you.
Sorry retard? did I deliberately walk near electrified lines?
Sorry if I find no compassion but what are we being told by the Echo?
he went to walk by the rail tracks between Millbrook & Totton?
The only way to get near those tracks is to climb fences or get down from the platform with out touching the electric tracks. so unless you can shed light on why he did it I can't feel sympathy.
If as I've suggested this was a suicide attempt then yes I feel for him but an article in the paper feeling sorry for his family isn't going to cut it is it.
It shouldn't have even been reported if that's indeed what it was & from some one who's brother committed suicide even though we saved him once this guy needs help right now not paper articles.
So if you have any genuine information on this we have to go by it being some guy trying to take a short cut alongside electrified lines & if that's so I have no sympathy for him
Hey loosehead. I don't suppose by any chance you have anything to do with wealth and safety do you? Please be assured that I will show you the same degree of sympathy and understanding that you have demonstrated if anything unfortunate should happen to you..........Heaven forbid.
Actually I was a safety rep at BAT so yes.
Look I see no reason for you to attack people like me when surely this guy was breaking the law & for what?
A Short Cut?
what Short Cut?
either this article should have never been printed( in case of attempted suicide) or the guy & his family shouldn't expect any sympathy for attempting to break the law.
would you feel sorry for him/them if he was burgling your home & fell out of a window & survived?
they're both breaking the law so sorry unless proven to be more than a Short Cut I think he4 got just punishment
I wouldnt have thought that this guys family are too worried about sympathy from you at the moment.
"I think he got just punishment' that single statement tells me everything I would ever really want to know about your character.
In all your comments you display a distinct lack of compassion and are highly judgemental. Leads me to the conclusion that throughout your life you have probably struggled to acquire true friendship as hard as you tried (probably too hard - needy and pest like) likely to have been bullied as a child which has continued through to adulthood leaving you with
very low self esteem which you try to counter by positioning yourself as some kind of mock authority in the work place (union rep, H&S etc) or attempting to be some kind of social authority by making unfounded suppositions on individuals and situations you read about on Internet forums.
Pathetic.
So the fact a train driver will more than likely have to have counselling.
the emergency services had to be called because some one decided to take a short cut alongside busy Rail tracks has nothing to do with it then?
Surely if Kids were running across the tracks or a busy motor way what you'd feel sorry for them if they got hit?
I have said twice now three times if this was a suicide attempt I feel sorry for him & he needs help not an article in the local paper.
What right has a bleeding heart like you got to come on here & say this rubbish?
I suppose if he was lobbing concrete off of a motorway bridge onto on coming traffic & fell you would feel sorry for him?

Cap fits then, yes?
No bleeding heart here; I'd rather wait for the facts to come out before I judge and condemn some poor, terribly injured individual.
It's called good sense and humanity, both attributes that you plainly lack.

Keep up the good work meat head.

You don't know that this person decided to take a short cut.
This piece is not about kids running across tracks or motorways.
You don't know if this was a suicide attempt.
This not a news piece about someone lobbing concrete off of a motorway bridge.
So despite all of the above you still feel confident enough to pass judgement on this guy and say the terrible injuries that he received, whatever the circumstances, were deserved.

A true display of what an embittered, sad individual you are.

Okay FONT of all knowledge why was he walking close to the rail tracks as the Police & Family don't know so come on let's hear why we should feel sorry for him & his family ?OH! here's the police statement.
He said officers were trying to establish why he was walking alongside the tracks at the time but would wait until he has made a fuller recovery before speaking to him.
so fine no one knows.
Before you insult me I will say again if this was indeed a call for help or attempted suicide this article shouldn't be printed.
Can you see how it will effect him when he gets better?
Instead of this article some one should be trying to get him help.
If he was on Millbrook Station getting stoned or drunk & decided to walk along side the tracks that's another story

Leads me to the conclusion that throughout your life you have probably struggled to acquire true friendship as hard as you tried (probably too hard - needy and pest like) likely to have been bullied as a child which has continued through to adulthood leaving you with
very low self esteem which you try to counter by positioning yourself as some kind of mock authority in the work place (union rep, H&S etc) or attempting to be some kind of social authority by making unfounded suppositions on individuals and situations you read about on Internet forums.
Pathetic.
So the fact a train driver will more than likely have to have counselling.
the emergency services had to be called because some one decided to take a short cut alongside busy Rail tracks has nothing to do with it then?
Surely if Kids were running across the tracks or a busy motor way what you'd feel sorry for them if they got hit?
I have said twice now three times if this was a suicide attempt I feel sorry for him & he needs help not an article in the local paper.
What right has a bleeding heart like you got to come on here & say this rubbish?
I suppose if he was lobbing concrete off of a motorway bridge onto on coming traffic & fell you would feel sorry for him?
Whilst we're at it, a fact can't be 'more than likely'
You don't know that this person decided to take a short cut.
This piece is not about kids running across tracks or motorways.
You don't know if this was a suicide attempt.
This not a news piece about someone lobbing concrete off of a motorway bridge.
So despite all of the above you still feel confident enough to pass judgement on this guy and say the terrible injuries that he received, whatever the circumstances, were deserved.

A true display of what an embittered, sad individual you are.
Okay FONT of all knowledge why was he walking close to the rail tracks as the Police & Family don't know so come on let's hear why we should feel sorry for him & his family ?OH! here's the police statement.
He said officers were trying to establish why he was walking alongside the tracks at the time but would wait until he has made a fuller recovery before speaking to him.
so fine no one knows.
Before you insult me I will say again if this was indeed a call for help or attempted suicide this article shouldn't be printed.
Can you see how it will effect him when he gets better?
Instead of this article some one should be trying to get him help.
If he was on Millbrook Station getting stoned or drunk & decided to walk along side the tracks that's another story

It's a shame some people can't stick to discussing the news article itself rather than resorting to childish personal insults when another person has a differing opinion.
