A student from Leeds seriously injured in a road accident in Thailand is said to be out of danger - thanks to a remarkable appeal for blood donors on social media.
University student Lucy Hill was on a gap year when she was knocked off a moped in the Northern city of Chiang Mai. It was feared the 21-year-old could die if enough donors didn't come forward.
But an urgent appeal online for donors of Lucy's rare blood type - A Negative - was shared more than 100,000 times - leading to queues outside the hospital two hours before it opened.
More £1500 has so far been raised to help a Leeds student with a rare blood type who is fighting for life in hospital after being involved in a serious moped crash in Thailand.
Lucy Hill, 21, was just one week into her gap year after graduating from Leeds Beckett University when her moped was hit by a car on Saturday morning at around 7.30am local time. She is now in intensive care and has had emergency surgery but needs blood transfusions.
Lucy has 'A Negative' blood type which is rare among people of Asian origin, and an international appeal has been issued to find donors in the country.
Her friend Lauren Hall, said they are 'relying on anyone of european descent' to help.
