The family of Jansin Turgut have issued a positive injury update on the 23-year-old, who remains in a medically-induced coma on the island of Ibiza. 

Turgut remains in critical condition after a three-storey fall from a car park, with his family revealing he had fractured every bone in his face, as well as suffering a fractured spine, broken hips, broken legs, broken knees, broken hands and a broken arm.

However, his mother has revealed that a CT scan on the former Salford and Hull FC man returned all clear, with no signs of brain damage and the heart, liver and kidney all now functioning on their own.

A pressure drone placed inside Turgut’s skull to relieve the pressure on his brain has now also been removed.

He has now been transferred from Nuestra Senora del Rosario Clinic to another medical facility on the Balearic island.

Speaking to Hull Live, Turgut’s mother Carole Butler said: “It’s fantastic news. The CT scan shows no brain damage and the plan is now to move Jansin from this private clinic to an NHS style hospital on the island.

“It’s phenomenal the way he is fighting and while it’s still a very concerning situation right now, we are all feeling so much more positive and this news about his brain is such a relief. We feel lifted by this news.”

Donations from the rugby league world to help meet the costs of Jansin’s treatment have already exceeded £15,000. Any further donations can be made by clicking here.
