Surfer riding on the crest of a wave after birth of daughter

Editor's Viewpoint

The tale of the Londonderry man who has become a dad for the first time just weeks after narrowly avoiding being left paralysed in a surfing accident is the ultimate good news story.

Life could have been so different for Billy McMenamin and his partner Hayley if it wasn't for good fortune.

Yet he realises that fortune has smiled on him a second time with the birth of his daughter. It has made him, in his own words, the happiest man on earth and, indeed, he has a lot to be happy about.

He now has another reason to get back on his feet as soon as possible, and a new person with whom to share the rest of his life.
