A GRANDMOTHER from Belfast is in critical condition in a Spanish hospital after suffering a serious fall from her third-floor apartment balcony in Alicante.
Geraldine Martin, 55, was placed in an induced coma after the 45-foot fall shattered her pelvis and ruptured her abdomen, among other serious injuries.
The fall happened at the end of April and Geraldine remains in a coma with doctors suggesting that she could remain in hospital for several months.
Her family have set up a JustGiving page at https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/gerard-martin to help raise funds to transfer her back home to Belfast when medically possible and to help cover fees as she had been travelling without health insurance.
Transport by ferry could cost £14,000 but her family are desperate to secure her safe return, especially as she suffers from chronic health problems.
