The family of a Lake Geneva teen stranded in Europe after falling ill on a vacation is saying thank you.
Nathan Dyer contracted E. coli while traveling in Morocco. Doctors there recommended he be taken to Paris for emergency treatment when he fell into a coma. Nathan's traveler's insurance covered the air ambulance trip and he was taken to France.
At first, the money was to be used to get him home on a specialized medical plane. Now the funds will be put towards Nathan’s mounting medical bills which could top $50,000.
“It's going to be more than what we have and more than what's been donated. The donations have been incredible, we're just floored. I'm speechless, I'm trying to find the best words but it's been an absolute miracle that people are willing to help us,” Rachel said.
Nathan is suffering from neurological and physical effects of being in a coma for so long and has an appointment to see his doctor Friday. Paris doctors told the family he should make a full recovery.
