Mum Of Brit Family In Car Crash Tragedy Wakes Up From Coma

Mum Of Brit Family In Car Crash Tragedy Wakes Up From Coma

A British woman in a coma since a car crash that killed her husband and two of her three children has woken up but has still not been told the news of her loss.

Merita Isufi, 34, had been in a coma in the intensive care ward at the general hospital in Dubrovnik in southern Croatia following the car crash that killed three other members of her family.

Although police are also looking to get a statement from her the only visitors that she has had now and is likely to receive for the foreseeable future have been her parents who are at her bedside.

The only other survivor of the crash involving the family of five was the woman's eight-year-old son who is not in the same hospital after being flown to a general hospital in the larger town of Split where he needed specialist treatment for a chest injury.

Doctors say that although both were severely injured they are now expecting that both will make a full recovery although they will need an extensive stay in hospital and rehabilitation therapy before they can be allowed to go home.

An insider at the hospital told Central European News: "She is still pretty sick, and has certainly not yet been told what has happened to her husband and two of her children. It was felt she was too fragile to be told the news just yet."

The crash happened on the Adriatic coast road on the way to Dubrovnik and the family were travelling in a car with British number plates, indicating that they had driven to the region from the UK.

According to initial reports, the British car struck a concrete verge at the side of the road and bounced into the path of a truck coming in the opposite direction. The truck was apparently a vehicle used by the country's road maintenance organisation.

The road, which is a key route for tourists heading to their holidays in the Croatian coastline, was closed for several hours while police tackled the clean-up operation and paramedics took the injured to hospital.
