Brit, 21, fighting for his life 'after being thrown 100m through windscreen' in horror crash in Kiev

Michael Sullivan, 21, was left bleeding by the side of a road in Kiev for over an hour before being rushed to the dilapidated Boris Medical Centre – where he will be chucked out if his family don't raise £75,000.

The teaching assistant was left with two broken arms, two broken ribs, several cracked ribs, and a ruptured spleen.

But doctors in the Ukranian capital will refuse to treat him unless his family in London stump up £1,500 a day for up to four months.

They posted on JustGiving: "Please help us raise extra funds to save 21-year-old Michael’s life.

"On Saturday 20th October Michael popped to the shops in Ukraine to get food and never returned home.


"He was hit by a car that catapulted him 100m through the window screen of his car. He was lying bleeding in the road for an hour before any support arrived.

"It is a miracle he is alive, he has broken arms, two broken legs, cracked ribs and ruptured spleen.

"He is currently in intensive care in a coma in Boris Hospital Kiev. His condition is currently critical and every day counts.

"Medical costs for the intensive care unit are 2000 USD a day. It is anticipated that he will be in this unit for at least 3/4 months.

There is no health system in Ukraine and if we run out of funds they will not continue to treat him.

"Please help us to give Michael all the support he needs at this crucial time. He has his whole life ahead of him and anyone that has met him will know he has a heart of gold.

"Any support would be greatly received."

Michael's brother, Jamie, helped create the page, which has raised £21,000 so far.
