A BRIT dad has died after mysteriously falling from the second floor balcony of his holiday home in Bulgaria.
Paul Bond, 61, passed away in a local Bulgarian hospital on July 23 after suffering with severe head injuries.
The devastated family had set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds to airlift him back home to Bristol for treatment but he was soon put into a coma.
The donation page was widely shared online but Bond sadly died wile still in Bulgaria.
Earlier this week, his daughter Abi Bond, shared the tragic news of his death on social media.
She said: “Dad passed away on Sunday afternoon. We just want to thank everyone for your kind words, prayers, support and donations, we will be forever grateful. We will be getting Dad home as soon as possible.”
Bond, who was described as “a hugely loved father, grandfather, son, brother and friend” had been renovating his holiday home when it appears he tumbled over the second floor balcony.
He was found by a friend on the morning of July 9, although it remains unclear when exactly he had fallen.
The dad was dashed to hospital in a coma due to severe brain injuries and he later underwent surgery.
His daughters Abi and Sophie rushed to Bulgaria to be at his bedside after he had been placed on life support.
His condition was described as stable, although he remained on life support and his head injuries were believed to be irreversible, according to the GoFundMe page.
The fundraising effort raised nearly £7,000 which will be used to bring him back to home to Bristol.
Family friend, Rebekah Richardson said: “We’re incredibly appreciative of all of those that have shared our story, the family story, all of those that have donated. It’s amazing what people have done so far.
“I just think it’s a time to pull together as a community. None of us imagine something like this happening to someone we love.
“We need to do everything that we can do to help them.”
