60-year-old, Denis Bouge, has suffered brain damage after a fall on his last day of his holidays in Lanzarote.
Denis was heading to the beach with his wife Marian, when he slipped on the tiles outside of his apartment and hit his head.
Denis from Carrigaline, Cork, hit his head so hard off the tiles he suffered a severe seizure. Following the incident Denis was airlifted to the local hospital in Gran Canaria.
The family struggled to gather the money together to fly to Gran Canaria hours later to be by Denis’s side. His three adult daughters, two young granddaughters and one of their daughters partners scrapped together more money for a hotel which is costing them 100 per night.
Due to the hospital being so far away from the hotel the family are struggling to pay for the hotel and travel to and from the hospital.
