British grandad in coma after Benidorm holiday faces 24-hour drive home and insurer WILL NOT pay

ORDEAL: Keith Arrowsmith stuck after infection in Benidorm left him comatose

A SERIOUSLY ill British grandad stranded in Spain could face a gruelling 24-hour drive, as his family fight to bring him home.

Keith Arrowsmith, 58 from Wrexham, has been stuck in Benidorm for nearly two months after a lung infection put him into an induced coma.

Mr Arrowsmith, who has six grandchildren, may need a road ambulance to bring him back to the UK, his daughter Donna told NorthWalesLive.

A “slight mistake” on the family’s insurance policy has meant insurers won’t pay out for the trip, which can cost around €12,800.

APPEAL: Keith’s family are trying to raise cash for epic road ambulance trip

Donna said her father was “very depressed”, although the Spanish authorities were still paying for his treatment.

She said: “He took a turn for the worse this week and was struggling to breathe.”

The family has set up a fundraising page to try and raise the cash to bring Mr Arrowsmith home, so far £1,135 has been raised.
