Brit dad-of-four, 33, fighting for life after hitting head on hotel floor during seizure on last day of Mexico holiday | The Sun

A BRIT dad is fighting for his life in a coma after hitting his head on a hotel floor during a seizure on the last day of his Mexico holiday.

Dad-of-four Paul McKenna had been due to fly back to the UK with his family on Sunday after a two-week holiday in Cancun when he suddenly fell ill.

The 33-year-old electrician was rushed to hospital with a suspected brain haemorrhage after having a seizure and hitting his head on the floor of his hotel room.

The dad has been moved between three different hospitals in the last two days to access the specialist treatment needed to keep him stable, his family said.

Paul is now reportedly on life support in an induced coma with his wife and children at his bedside.

His family and friends believe he had a seizure after catching a bug on the holiday and taking a turn for the worse.

Pal Joe Snellgrove told the Liverpool Echo: "They think it started from some sort of bug because the family had been ill.

"Then on Sunday, he had a seizure, fell and banged his head. He was then induced into a coma.

"The current concern is that he's had a brain haemorrhage but the first thought was he had a stroke.

"Still there is uncertainty surrounding what has actually happened.”

Joe added: "We're devastated.

"He's a brilliant fella and he'd help everyone, like last year during a storm I had some damage to my house and he came out to help straight away.

"He's really well-known in the community and everyone's feeling very upset and concerned."

A JustGiving page in aid of the dad has raised nearly £25,000 so far.

Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher has chipped in £5,000 to help Paul.

James Stanley, who launched the fundraiser, said: "Whilst on a family holiday in Mexico with his wife, young children and family, Paul suffered a suspected brain haemorrhage and was rushed to hospital.

"Paul is currently on life support, his condition at present is serious but stable.

"His travel insurance does not cover his current condition so the family have already incurred costs in the tens of thousands for medical care, accommodation and essentials due this happening on the last day of their holiday.

"His close friends and family are trying to support his wife Amy to raise as much as possible in order for them to pay for the highest quality of care possible and to ensure that they can stay with him during this time any rehabilitation that he will require when he comes around.
