Regarding the lifter fall incident during election campaign in Lahore, Khan said that security guards surrounded him and he fell down after losing his balance.
Mr Khan, 60, is due to fly to Britain in the next 48 hours for specialist treatment. Sitting stiffly on a straight-backed chair, and with a plastic corset beneath his shirt to protect his back, he described his first memories after the fall.
“When I came to my senses … I’m not scared of dying but I do worry about being handicapped because of having been a sportsman and being fit,” he said. “So the moment I came to, even before the anger, I felt: am I all there? I felt my feet, hands and everything.
“I had a terrible headache because I had stitches in my forehead, I had a fractured rib, a punctured lung, terrible pain in my back. But I sort of felt I was lucky.”
Mr Khan was in the last, frantic days of a tight election battle when the accident happened. He fell as he was being hoisted by forklift truck on to a stage surrounded by security guards at a rally in Lahore.
It is pertinent to note, PTI emerged as the largest mandate holding political party in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province after Pakistan’s Election 2013.
