The 29-year-old man who was found lying unrepsonsive in Enniskillen last Sunday morning remains in a critical condition in hospital

A source close to the injured party and his family has told this newspaper that it is now just a “waiting game” for the family.

“He is in an extremely bad way. He’s not able to breathe unassisted and there is the potential of brain damage as his brain was starved of oxygen,” the source said. “It is really just a waiting game at the minute.

“We’re all praying for a miracle.”

The source said the family are focusing all their energy on the man’s recovery, who was discovered at around 3.30am on Sunday morning.

Enniskillen Councillor for Sinn Féin Tommy Maguire sent his best wishes to the victim and also urged young people who go out to make sure they get home safely.

“It was with regret that I heard of the incident in Enniskillen town centre on Saturday night.

“Obviously we have endeavoured over the years to make Enniskillen a safe environment for the night time economy and have managed to achieve the Purple Flag status. It would be with deep regret that we would see any more incidents happening in our town centre.

“We are aware of tragedies in other towns and I would encourage all young people to go out to enjoy themselves and get them home safely and I send my best wishes to this young man and wish him all the best.”

Yesterday (Wednesday) a Western Health and Social Care Trust spokesperson said the man remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Police have charged another 29-year-old man with grievous bodily harm in relation to the alleged assault which took place in the early hours of Sunday morning in The Diamond area of Enniskillen. He is due to appear at Fermanagh Magistrates Court on Monday, July 29. As is normal procedure all charges will be reviewed by the PPS.
