A BRIT student has been left in a coma after he was mowed down by a car on the first night of his holiday in Budapest.
David Kloos, 20, was crossing the road when he was struck by the vehicle.
He suffered a fractured skull and doctors in the Hungarian capital have put him in an induced coma because of the swelling in his brain.
His dad Simon, brother Callum and girlfriend Laura Clayton have flown out to Budapest to be at his hospital bedside.
David was on his way to a spa party with friends when the accident happened on April 6.
Lewis Guest, who was among the holidaymakers, has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to fund David’s medical care and legal fees.
The University of Liverpool student was rushed to Baleseti Kozpont hospital, where he remains in intensive care.
David has always tried to give as much as he can to the community, friends and those in need. I ask you please to find it in your hearts to support a son, brother, boyfriend and dear friend
David’s family has been told they won’t know the full effect of his injuries until he wakes up.
Lewis wrote on his fundraising page: “All donations will provide crucial financial support in a time of hardship for the family, and help with his recovery, rehabilitation and repatriation.
“Donations and your support will also help with the legal costs to support Dave after his tragic accident.
“David has always tried to give as much as he can to the community, friends and those in need.
“I ask you please to find it in your hearts to support a son, brother, boyfriend and dear friend.
“David would help anyone in need, and if you could consider him in his recovery, he and so many others would greatly appreciate it.”
Over 16000 people have donated, including two well-wishers offering £1000.
The page has been shared 3,700 times on Facebook.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: “Our staff are supporting the family of a British man hospitalised in Budapest.
“We have provided details of local interpreters and lawyers so they can engage them if they wish, and are in contact with the local police and hospital.”
