Brit woman in coma after horror plunge from hotel balcony during holiday

A 22-year-old British woman has been left in a coma after a horror fall from a hotel balcony in Croatia.

Jennifer Walsh, from Edinburgh, was in Dubrovnik while on holiday with a friend when she fell from the balcony on October 2.

She suffered a bleed on the brain, two skull fractures, a punctured lung, a broken collar bone, broken ribs and a fractured wrist.

Jennifer was rushed to hospital to undergo brain surgery to save her life as her parents looked to fly out to be by her side.

Following successful surgery, Jennifer is now in a stable condition but remains in an induced coma, the Daily Record reports.

Her sister Sara Walsh has set up a fundraising campaign to cover medical costs after it was revealed Jennifer did not have travel insurance.

Writing on Facebook, Sara said: “The worst 4 days of our lives. On Saturday the 2nd of October we received a phone call to say my beautiful sister had fallen from a balcony while on holiday in Croatia.

"Myself and my parents were left in absolute shock, all devastated with this horrifying news not knowing what was going to happen to our Jen."
