EIGHT-YEAR-OLD Blair Scott, who was found lying motionless at the bottom of a resort swimming pool in Spain, is out of intensive care and sat up in hospital in Spain eating chicken nuggets.
Speaking to the Euro Weekly News this morning (Tuesday) the family said Blair was ‘doing well’ in hospital in Alicante.
His aunt Laura Scott had taken little Blair, who was sedated and on a ventilator for several days after his accident last week, his favourite snack of chicken nuggets and chips to lift his spirits and help speed a full recovery.
Blair was reportedly spotted lying motionless at the bottom of a resort swimming pool at the Magic Robin Hood on Spain’s Costa Blanca before being rescued by two holidaymakers on September 9.
The resort issued a two-page document detailing the events of the accident Blair’s father, Kevin, disputed some of the claims telling the Euro Weekly News, “We have several witness statements to prove otherwise.”
He continued, “I’m contacting all of the witnesses. There are several statements online as to what the truth is. My partner was there and lots of people witnessed it.”
A fundraising page has been set up to help raise £2,000 for Blair and his family by Jacqui Perkins, who runs the Facebook group Benidorm & Costa Blanca News & Information Forum.
There are also collecting tins in the Stretford End Bar, the Showboat, the Black Chicken, the Rich Bitch and Mandeeps shop inside the Marina Hotel.
Blair’s family is also being supported by Benidorm’s British Businesses Association at the request of the British Consulate.
