A young dad has shattered both his legs during a horrific balcony fall while on a "dream holiday" with his family.

Jamie Moylan, from Birkenhead, Merseyside, was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Saturday morning after plunging to the ground while saying goodbye to friends.

The 26-year-old was given emergency surgery after doctors reportedly told his partner Mia they were going to amputate his foot.

But Jamie is still in Turkey and it is not yet known whether he will ever walk again after the accident, Liverpool Echo reports.

Now his family are frantically trying to raise enough money to pay the hospital bills and to organise to bring him home for more treatment.

Mia Hodgson told the Liverpool Echo the couple, and their three-year-old daughter Amaya, were only supposed to be there for one week but decided to extend their stay after Jamie's sister flew out to the holiday destination with her children.

The 24-year-old, from Liverpool, said: "Friday was our last night and we were due to fly home on Saturday so we had been out for a family meal before coming back to the hotel.

"I took Abbey to bed and Jamie went to say bye to some friends we met out there."

A short time later, Mia said the hotel manager woke her up to get Jamie's passport and to say he had been in an accident.

Mia added: "At around 1am they woke me to say he'd been in an accident and needed his passport urgently.

"Apparently he was chatting to our friends on the balcony but there was nowhere to sit.

"So Jamie sat on the balcony railings and put one leg over to stabilise himself but he lost his balance and fell."

At the hospital the doctors were saying they would need to amputate Jamie's foot because it was so badly damaged.

Mia said: "I begged them not to and they rushed him to surgery to see what they could do. He had a major operation on both legs and is still in a really bad way.

"We don't even know if he will walk again."

Now she is trying to raise £20,000 to pay for Jamie's hospital treatment before she can bring him home.

Mia added: "He just wants home and I need him here.

"It's so stressful and scary and we just don't know what the future is going to be like for us but we need to get him home as soon as possible."
