14-year-old boy had STROKE but being sporty saved his life

Alex Doran and his mother

A 14-year-old boy who thought he had a headache was actually having a stoke.

Alex Doran from Salisbury in Wiltshire collapsed at home while getting dressed for school.

He felt a sharp pain his head, his eyes were rolling and he began vomiting.

Baffled hospital doctors first diagnosed him with a migraine but an MRI scan showed he had a narrow artery in his neck which caused a stroke.

They believe club swimmer Alex only survived because he was physically fit.
