23-year-old Ross Davidson who had to have his right leg amputated below the knee following a motorbike accident in Thailand whilst on holiday last month is due to travel back to Ireland today for additional treatment.
Ross was out riding a scooter in the Pai district when he crashed in the early part of last month and has since been treated in several hospitals here in the kingdom.
Following the accident his parents Andrew and Desna flew out to be with their son while he received treatment for multiple injuries, doctors concluded however after the accident they had no choice but to amputate his right leg.
Ross had taken out two separate travel insurance policies prior to his holiday but so far only one has said it might pay out some money towards the total cost of his treatment.
A fundraising page was established shortly after the accident where over £20,500 has thus far been raised.
So far the young man from Co Antrim has had to undergo 13 operations taking place in three different hospitals and receive over 50 blood transfusions.
Ross will start his journey back home today and is scheduled to arrive at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast shortly before midnight where yet more surgeries await him.
His mother stated that he will undergo two operations a week until the wound is free of infection and can finally be closed.
Mrs Davidson said the family is “truly overwhelmed” by the support they have received in something which she described as being a parents “worst nightmare.”
