A British mother-of-three who was left in a coma after suffering a bleed on her brain while on holiday in Benidorm passed away earlier this week.
Donna Proudfoot from County Durham, England was enjoying a long weekend in the Costa Blanca capital to celebrate her 50th birthday with her husband and other family members earlier this month when, without any explanation, she fell ill in the night.
She was rushed to the nearby hospital where she remained in a coma until Tuesday night when she lost her fight for life.
Speaking before Mrs Proudfoot died, family member Kirsty Harker told the English press the family were all devastated by what had happened but were incredibly grateful to members of the community back at home in England for their support.
“We are overwhelmed by what has been done for us,” she said. “We can’t thank people enough. We have had massive support from the community.
