Mother of Scottish man who suffered brain aneurysm credits his girlfriend for saving his life in Thailand

The mother of a man who suffered a brain aneurysm in Thailand says it was thanks to his girlfriend his life was saved.

24 year old Owen Auskerry was working in Thailand as a teacher when he fell ill. When girlfriend Janjira realized he was suffering from severe headaches, seizures and vomiting she wasted no time in calling an ambulance. On arrival at the hospital Mr Auskerry was diagnosed with having a burst blood vessel in his brain. He was then airlifted from his home in Nakhon Si Thammarat to Bangkok where he underwent a three hour surgery. Mother Ms Probert told reporters that had Janjiara and his friend Kyle not been with her son when he had a seizure he would probably not be alive today. She said that while he was in hospital her son was trying to pull out tubes including the one carrying oxygen to a collapsed lung.

Thanks to the generosity of friends and family and total strangers online crowd funding raised tens of thousands of pounds to fly him home where his mother say she is making a speedy recovery and praised the generosity of those who donated to help with not only transport but the costs of ongoing care. Mr. Auskerry’s speech as well as his reading and writing skills have been affected, he is expected to recover in anything between a month and a year.

Janjira who is currently studying at university is currently trying to obtain a visa to go and visit Mr. Auskerry.
