In May 2020, Wagih Bassalious broke his neck after he fell from an e-scooter he had been fixing near his home in Auckland’s Unsworth Heights. He walked into hospital and left as a tetraplegic, Stuff reports, in what doctors say was “tragic”, “exceptionally rare” and “almost certainly unpreventable”. Both the review and the adverse event report found national best-practice was followed during Bassalious’ care at North Shore Hospital.
