A BRITISH lad has been left in a coma after a single punch attack at a popular holiday hotspot in Spain.
Gavin Robertson is fighting for his life after he suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain after the unprovoked attack in Ibiza.
The 26-year-old remains in an induced coma at Policlinica del Rosaria hospital with mum Kirsty McMaster, 45, and aunt Paula Marshall, 37 at his bedside.
“Gavin’s in a stable condition in an induced coma just now.
“The doctors say it will be at least five days before they try to take him off it, so this week is critical.
“The pressure on his brain keeps going up and down. We just don’t know what the lasting damage could be.”
Gavin had been standing at an ATM with friends when a stranger ran up behind him and punched him on the side of the head.
The electrician from Ayrshire in Scotland now faces a gruelling recovery that could last months.
Kirsty added: “One punch is all it took. He hit his head off the ground and fractured his skull.
“It’s going to be a long road ahead for us.”
