Holiday Rep From Southampton In Balcony Fall
A 31 year old holiday rep from Southampton is fighting for his life in hospital after falling from a balcony in Gran Canaria.
Lian Connis was working for Thomas Cook and it's believed he was found unconscious outside his apartment building in Puerto Rico.
His colleagues had reported him missing on Monday 8th October when they were told he was in hospital.
It's now though Lian had locked himself out and was trying to climb into his apartment.
His parents and sister flew out today (Thursday 11th) to be at his bedside where he is in an induced coma.
It's claimed he has serious head injuries, a fractured pelvis, broken leg and punctured lung.
A spokesman for Thomas Cook UK and Ireland said: 'Lian Connis is a valued member of our Gran Canaria resort team.
'We're giving our full support to him, his family and colleagues while he is in hospital. We wish him the speediest of recoveries.'
The 79-year-old man suffered a serious head injury in the Cranmer Road car park in Winton.
