LIFE SUPPORT: Haydn is in a ‘bad way’ according to family

A BRITISH father has been left on life support after he fell onto a dual carriageway and was hit by a car on the Costa del Sol.

Haydn Atwood, 39, tripped and fell while running down a hill with his son Ashley 17, on the first day of their Malaga holiday.

Ashley saw his father, a carer from Caerphilly in South Wales, collide with the car and fly through the air.

Mr Atwood’s sister Hailey said: “It was their first day out there and they had gone for a walk but as they were jogging down the side of a mountain momentum picked up and they didn’t stop.

“Haydn went straight onto the motorway and got hit by a car, his son saw his father fly up in the air.”

LADS HOLIDAY: Fall came on first day of trip

The Atwood family have been able to fly out to visit Haydn at the Hospital Clinico Universitario after friends and neighbours launched a fundraiser.  

Hailey added: “Haydn had a bleed on the brain and his skull is fractured on one side, he’s on life support and he’s got a tube down his throat.

“He’s in a bad way.”
