The uncle of a five-year-old boy in a coma fighting for his life in Italy has described the situation as a “nightmare”.
Corin Hetherington’s nephew, Dominic, is on a life support machine after being injured, along with his dad Guiseppe, in a car crash.
Dominic’s mother Jordan has gone out to Italy to be with him.
Mr Hetherington said she does not have a bed to sleep in and gave up her job to be with her son so she has no financial income.
A fundraising appeal to support the family has been launched and is aiming to raise £25,000.
