Care worker beaten by thugs bullying son leaves hospital but is still unable to talk and has to be fed through a tube
A CARE worker savagely beaten by thugs has left hospital but is unable to talk and has to be fed through a tube.
Alan Willson was in a coma after the gang of teenagers battered him for trying to stop them bullying his 11-year-old son.
The 46-year-old, who worked tirelessly through the pandemic, had been in hospital since the attack in April but his wife Annie says he is now home with his family.
She said: “He cannot speak and has lost vision in one eye and has now been assessed as having no mental capacity due to four brain injuries.
“He cannot eat so is fed through a tube every three hours by me.
“He has had such great trauma to his face — he won’t even allow us to shave him as it’s an object coming towards him.”
Alan had an object smashed on his head in a park in Worthing, West Sussex, on Easter Sunday.
An online appeal raised £36,915 towards adaptations to his home.
Annie added the family was having therapy for PTSD. Their son “now finds his dad a bit scary as he looks different”, she said.
Three boys, 14, 15 and 17, have been charged with GBH with intent which carries a maximum sentence of life jail.
