NewsMail - - NEWS -

NSW Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Mick Fuller has called De­tec­tive Sergeant John Breda’s re­cov­ery a “mir­a­cle”. The vet­eran of­fi­cer (pic­tured), who was stabbed by child abuser Nick New­man at a Maroubra pub on Fri­day, opened his eyes yes­ter­day and be­gan com­mu­ni­cat­ing with his family. “John is talk­ing and pre­par­ing for his first re­hab ses­sion this af­ter­noon,” Com­mis­sioner Fuller said. “He’s a lucky man, but in say­ing that, he was in­cred­i­bly fit and in­cred­i­bly strong men­tally. The doc­tors put that down to one of the key rea­sons he sur­vived.” New­man was shot dead by po­lice.
