3 min read

Over 300 people gathered to show their support for the family

Over 300 people, all residents of Orihuela village La Aparecida attended a gathering on Sunday where they demonstrated their support for the family of 15 year old Aitor, a young boy from the community, who is currently in a critical condition in the Elche General Hospital.

Aitor was rushed into hospital two weeks ago after he fell through a skylight while playing on the unfinished building site of the proposed civic center. He remains in an induced coma and is suffering from a fracture of the skull.

The gathering, said to be a humble but emotional event, was arranged on Sunday by the Neighborhood Association of Our Lady of Bethlehem as a way of showing their support. A spokesman said "in this town we are a very close community, we celebrate all the good things and we share all the bad times together."

They said that they did not want to blame anybody for what was a tragic accident for what happened, but "once for all" they are now asking the Orihuela council to complete the works at the civic center which began more than six years ago.

The boy’s parents, José Antonio Martínez and Pilar Aracil, have run the popular Bar Casa Rincón de Pepe in the town and are very popular among the local residents.
