BRITISH holidaymaker Nicholas Austin, whose family was tragically killed in last week's traffic accident in Minorca, is said to have emerged from his coma at Son Dureta hospital in Palma where he has been treated since last Wednesday when he was airlifted to Majorca. Nicholas Austin's wife Sally, 49, their son Samuel aged 14 and daughter Claire all died at the scene of the accident along the main Ciutadella to Ferreries road at 5.30 last Tuesday. A second vehicle was involved and it too was carrying a family of British holidaymakers.
The Blackwells from Bracknell in Berkshire survived and have all since returned home to England.
The hire car in which the Austins were travelling, a Ford KA, was split in two in the accident, which apparently involved a third car.
Nicholas Austin, 51, was rushed to El Verge del Toro hospital in Mahon before being declared stable enough to be airlifted to Son Dureta in Palma on Wednesday morning. He is understood to have emerged from his come on Monday but is expected to remain in hospital.
