Super Models - Pam Warren
Pam Warren – A woman of Courage
On Oct 5 1999, a terrible train crash took place just outside Paddington station London. Hundreds were Injured and 31 died. This happened when 2 trains collided because one of the drivers did not stop at a red signal.
Pamela Warren was travelling on that train, that fateful day in Oct 99; Her face and hands were badly burnt because a fireball engulfed the carriage she was in . She spent 3 months in hospital and after under going 22 operations, had to wear a face mask for 18 months, to allow her skin to heal.
On Oct 5 2009 – 10 years to the day of the accident. Pam got on a train for the first time since then and faced her fears. I watched the documentary on TV (broadcast 7 October) and she was nervous. She told the reporter, she could hear and see everything that was happening on the train 10 years ago - The grinding and violent grating sound as the carriage was being crumpled, the sound of men and women screaming around her; the white heat of a fireball, the sound of her hair crackling as the flames swept over her - but she still managed to sit on the train and this time arrived at Paddington station safely.

Karen, once a successful pensions adviser with her own business, had to sell her business due to the horrific injuries she sustained. A few years after the crash, she also went through a painful divorce, but today she is a Woman of Courage.
I admire your strength and Courage Karen and hope you find happiness and fulfilment in the future again. You are and will continue to be an inspiration to many.
