Incredible gesture made by complete stranger to family of man in coma

The family of a man left in a coma after a mystery incident in Magaluf have been shocked by a complete stranger’s incredible gesture.

James O’Neill was enjoying a short break with two mates in the Spanish resort when he was suddenly found with horrendous head injuries,including all the bones in his face being broken.

The 29-year-old is currently being treated in hospital as local police attempt to find out whether he was hurt in an accident or vicious attack.

The first his family in Widnes, Cheshire, knew about it was when they received a call from the Foreign Office on Saturday to say that James was in intensive care in Mallorca’s main hospital in Palma.


James – who turns 30 in October – was on his own when the incident occurred after he stayed out later than his friends, reports Liverpool Echo .

Members of his family have flown out to the resort to be by his side after hundreds of people donated money to help pay for flights and passports for his parents.

Since a second GoFundMe page was set up to support the Liverpool fan a total stranger has made an incredible offer – free accommodation at his five-bed home near where James is being treated.

Jon O’Neill, who says he is no relation to the family or James, posted on the public page to offer James’ parents, aunt and cousin somewhere to stay while they are out there.

His comment said: "I’ve just read about James’s tragedy and would like to offer any assistance that would be of help perhaps to James’s parents or relatives that may be coming to Mallorca to be with James.

"I am in Mallorca now but will be returning to the Glasgow tomorrow evening/ Wednesday morning.

"I have a five [bed] house here and it’s 10 minutes from Magaluf and same from the hospital."

Jon wrote on the page, set up by James’ cousin Chloe, that the family could use the property for free.

He added: "Just thinking that it would be more personal than a hotel room and for clarity it’s a donation. NO COSTS.

"Coincidentally, my name is John O’Neill (unrelated to my knowledge) I don’t know who will be reading this but I’m assuming it’s Chloe so, Chloe if you’re in Magaluf and want to have a chat feel free to give me a call now if you think this would be of any help to James’s family.

"Or if there’s any other way I could be of help. Finally and the above apart I wish James a speedy recovery."

According to the page, Jon is now in contact with the family who have thanked him for his kind gesture.

Natalie Ostick replied to the comment and said: "Jon… this is such a kind gesture.

"I have just told his mum & dad and they can’t thank you enough.

"Hopefully the doctors give us some positive updates today.

"Family out there will call you as soon as they’ve left James & doctors."

The first fundraising page set up for James raised over £5,000 in just 24 hours while a second one has raised almost £2,000.
