Yusuf Yerkel was touring Soma with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan when he hurt his leg.
Medics at the Ankara Atatürk Training and Research Hospital diagnosed Mr Yerkel with soft tissue trauma. The report states:
“There are 10×10 cm oedema, bruises and soft tissue panicula on the right knee, and bruises and soft tissue panicula on the left shoulder and front of the chest. The patient has been diagnosed with soft tissue trauma as there is sensitivity with leg and arm movements and difficulty with walking.”
Medics urge Mr Yerkel to use his head, literally, the next time, or else run the considerably risk of further inflaming the damage.
The man who injured Mr Yerkel’s leg has yet to apologise…
