Lack of travel insurance sees mother take out loan to bring son home

The mother of a man who went on holiday to Magaluf without taking out travel insurance has had to secure a loan in order to bring him home after he suffered a swimming pool accident that left him paralysed from the chest down.

Heather Wilson's son Brian, 34, hit his head after diving into water at the region's Playa Hotel. Although family and friends have been involved in fundraising to come up with the required £14,000 to fly him back to the UK, she must borrow cash as the aircraft operator demands payment in advance.
