A young Rangers fan fought for life after being ‘stabbed in the neck’ in Benidorm
A Scottish holidaymaker has been fighting for his life after he was ‘stabbed multiple times in the neck’ at a bar in Spain.
Onlookers revealed how horrified they looked at the youngster Rangers fan clutched his neck as he was covered in blood.
An off-duty nurse who was on vacation cared for Samuel until an ambulance arrived and rushed him away for surgery.
It is believed that he is still in hospital recovering from his injuries.
Shocked holidaymaker Donna Louise Burnett wrote on Facebook Sunday: “A man had his throat slit in a bar on Broadway last night, I don’t know him personally, nor does my friend.
“My friend was completely traumatized by it all as he had spoken to the gentleman it happened to just ten minutes before it happened.
“We were there when it happened, we just saw him with his hands on his neck and blood everywhere.
“A mate of mine is trained in first aid and immediately went to try to help with a nurse, another friend called an ambulance and myself and the fourth in the group just did what we could to control the crowd. .

“We don’t know what happened before the incident or how it happened – I just saw the blood and went to help.
“The police probably took 5-10 minutes to get there, at which point we were all told to stand back and the police carried out aggressive crowd control with anyone not complying – the helping nurse was allowed to stay, but anyone else was turned away.
“Ambulance another 5-10 minutes after that. Once the ambulance left, we didn’t know what happened.”
Iain Chalmers said: “I was there at the time, would also like to know if the boy survived.”
Tommy Swift said: “Unfortunately I was in that bar and saw the aftermath and I’ve been traumatized ever since and I’m never going back to Benidorm.
“The gate staff and the police did nothing to help.
“The young nurse did her best to save this young man’s life, I pray she did.”
Tabatha Neale, the nurse who helped Samuel, said: “My friend and I were the two nurses helping him. He survived and is recovering in hospital.
“I can’t get over the lack of compassion shown by staff and police.”
Speaking today, she said: ‘His throat was not slit but he was stabbed in the neck multiple times.
Samuel’s father posted an update on his son’s condition below the post and thanked Tabatha for all his help.
He said, “Hi, I’m Samuel’s father. Just to let you all know he’s recovering from his operation. As for that young lady’s response, I’ll be forever grateful.”
