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.”
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.”
