His family have set up a Crowdfunding page to help get Alex the treatment he needs so he can return safely home. His fiancee, Rebecca Thorpe, has flown out to be by his side.

The page says: "Alex was only 6 hours into his stag do when he was in a very serious accident leaving him in intensive care with multiple injuries. He's in a stable condition however not quite pulled through yet and these next few days are crucial for him.

"All donations are simply to cover the cost of his care and see him returned home safely to his adored son Zach. Unfortunately, Alex had alcohol in his system which could affect/void any insurance cover he may have and therefor lead to the insurance company refusing to pay.

"Any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated and we will be forever grateful of. Thank you in advance, he is surrounded by family and friends that love him and pray he pulls through this in the best way possible. Please say a prayer for him too."

The appeal has already reaped a massive £12,000 in just 11 hours.
