life after he suffered a stroke while out playing with his friends..

Cain Griffiths was riding his bike with his friends at Maerdy reservoir in the Rhondda Valley last Friday when he suddenly collapsed.

He was rushed to hospital where his family were told he had suffered a stroke to the left side of his brain which affected the right side of his body. The 13-year-old also has a blood clot in the middle cerebral artery of his brain.

The family say that due to the boulders blocking the entrance of the reservoir, the ambulance could not get to him, WalesOnline reports.

The 13-year-old underwent surgery in Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, where he still remains but he is now awake. His family say he has “a long road in front of him.”

Parents Gemma Caviell and Neil Griffiths who live in Ferndale have been by Cain’s side in hospital. Auntie Shelley Caviell said that her nephew could have died.

“He just went funny, that’s all they described it as, they said he didn’t feel right and he was calling for his brother.

“I was in the gym and one of the mum’s of one of the other children rang to say Cain’s fainted can you tell your sister.

“I rang my sister as she does make up, she said ‘I’ll finish this make up, Neil is on his way to him and I’ll grab some Calpol on the way, we just thought it was hot, he’s been out all day. No one thought for one second it was anything on this level.

“When they did get to him, Cain’s dad had to take them (ambulance crews) up on quads. All his mouth was drooping and he couldn’t talk.”

The 37-year-old said that they don’t know what the cause of the stroke is yet.
