Chris Watkins from Pontypool South Wales is an induced Coma in Spain after a poolside accident
Chris and a group of friends were taking a break on Spain’s holiday island Tenerife when tragedy struck.
He was playing poolside when he dived into the hotel pool in Playa de las Americas and hit his head on the bottom of the pool.
As the hotel’s lifeguards witnessed the action, they dived into the pool to rescue the Welshman although being retrieved from the pool Chris had clearly broken his neck and couldn’t feel his body.
He currently is in hospital in Tenerife in Santa Cruz whilst his family have now set up a Go Fund Me Campaign to raise £20,000 to pay his medical expenses and return him back to Wales when he comes out of his current coma.
