If Marion Hawkins hadn’t known it was her son who fell from a top row balcony at a Harry Styles concert, she would have thought it was a “blow-up doll.”
The 39-year-old Scottish mum is shocked – but grateful – that her 20-year-old son Dylan Wood is “relatively unharmed” from his frightening accident at the former boybander’s concert in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday.
“I wish I hadn’t seen the video,” Hawkins admitted to The Sun of the fan-captured footage of the fall. “You get your own picture of what it looked like, but seeing that was horrifying.”
Hawkins was lying in bed when she received the dreaded call that Wood was injured and in the hospital.
“He’s in high dependency (ICU) because of his head and they have to keep an eye on him. He has a concussion and no breaks. He has two blue eyes, which I think is because maybe his face was punched, his nose was bleeding and that’s it,” she said. “He has a sore shoulder, but nothing is broken.”
She said it was emotional to see her son on a ventilator for a day to stabilize him, but it was a “total miracle” that Wood is much better now.
“We’re all so relieved,” Hawkins shared, adding that he was “just really tired and upset” at the unusual – and alarming – incident.
“I’ve only gone to the hospital twice in Dylan’s life for his asthma and then he turned 20 and broke his kneecap and needed major surgery,” his mother revealed.
“And he still went to work and everything else,” she said of Wood, who is an electrical engineer. “He just keeps going.”
Despite Wood’s lack of previous health concerns, Hawkins said he used his remaining luck on the incident.
“I think he used up all his chips. His whole life is gone now, and so is mine,” she said.
“He mustn’t do anything right now where he can get a bruise or a bump.”
