Woman becomes paralyzed after falling out of bed while waking husband for sex

A woman now needs fundraising after she became paralyzed from the neck down when she fell from the bed while waking her husband for sex.

Sophie Rodgers has been told that she would "probably never walk again."

The 44-year-old said she "bunny hopped" over sleeping husband Guy Rodgers, 53, back in August 2019 in a bid to rouse him for sex but "misjudged" her jump, fell out of their double bed and became unconscious.

When she regained consciousness the next morning, she "couldn’t move anything" and was dashed to James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, where she was told the seriousness of her condition.

The mother-of-three has since endured "horrendous" nerve pain leaving her screaming each time she was touched, and three operations, including one to fit titanium rods in her neck and to have a stoma fitted.

Speaking about the incident, Sophie said, according to Metro.co.uk: "I was mucking about and bunny hopping over my husband on my hands and knees and just being a wally messing in bed as you do, I misjudged a jump and fell off the bed.

"He was fast asleep and I was trying to wake him up because I wanted a bit of hanky panky. I tried to wake him up by jumping either side of him."

The next thing Sophie knew, she was laying down on the floor and, although she could move her arms at this point, her limbs were cold.

Guy, who gets up at 4.30am for work, was fast asleep and didn’t realise what had happened. When he woke up to go to the loo, he helped Sophie get back into bed, not realising the gravity of the situation.
