A teenager seriously hurt in a horrific quad bike crash in Greece remained in a medically-induced coma after efforts to wake him were put on hold.
Plans to gradually rouse Harri Jones, who works at the clubhouse at Carden Park , were aborted on Monday (July 25) after he developed a temperature.
The 18-year-old Coleg Cambria student from Wrexham collided head-on with a lorry on the first day of a holiday in Kavos on July 20, leaving him with a fractured skull and jaw as well as a smashed right eye socket.
He was put in an induced coma in a hospital at the Corfu resort in order to prevent swelling on his brain.
As his injuries were less severe than originally feared doctors hoped to bring him out of the coma today.
His friend Shane Tarpey said: “Unfortunately he has a temperature so they don’t want to do anything that may affect his recovery.”
Campaign to bring Harri home
An online campaign launched a day after the crash to raise funds to cover the costs of bringing Harri home has almost reached £15,000.
Shane said a group of friends have bought 40 fundraising tins, nearly all of which have been placed in shops and pubs around Wrexham.
He added: “The response has been amazing – everyone wants to help out.”
The 'Bring Harri Home' fundraising page was set up after it became apparent his insurers would not cover the claim as the accident occurred while riding a quad.
