A security guard was left in a coma after he was viciously attacked by a man who he suspected of using fake £20 notes.
Jamie Jordan was working an event, at the huge Bramley Moore warehouse at CIRCUS Christmas Special, on December 21.
However, the 30-year-old was left fighting for his life after he was attacked by a man he suspected of handing out fake banknotes in return for wristbands.
Mum Susan Jordan, speaking on behalf of her son, told the ECHO how her son confronted the alleged offender and a scuffle began, after he asked him to leave the event, at around 9pm.
During the scuffle the man is alleged to have punched Mr Jordan, from Leeds, to the side of the head.
Mrs Jordan told the ECHO how her son “felt something sharp and metal, possibly a ring, strike his skin.”
She added: “When the man tried to run off, her son pursued him and rugby tackled him to the ground.
“He yelled into his radio, “I need help!”, but he said there was no response from any of his team.”
Mr Jordan alleges that while he was being attacked, another man – believed to the alleged attacker’s friend – came over and “stamped on his leg” and dragged his friend away.
After the attack the 30-year-old security guard, visited the medical tent, and after a brief examination, he returned to work.
But he only got as far as the bar when he claims he “began to vomit, had blurred vision and felt a very strong headache.”
Mr Jordan returned to the medical centre where he blacked out.
He then had a seizure and was rushed to hospital by paramedics.
In the ambulance, Mrs Jordan was telephoned, and heard a voice saying, “stay strong, Jamie,” before another of her son’s, who was with his brother, told her: “Mam, it’s serious.”
The guard had a second seizure in the ambulance, and a third in the A & E department of the Royal Liverpool Hospital.
