A young Irishman is fighting for his life in a French hospital after he fell 15 feet from a balcony while watching the Monaco Grand Prix at the weekend.
The 24-year-old, from Kerry, sustained serious head injuries during the accident on Sunday.
He is believed to have climbed some scaffolding in order to get a better view of the race.
He was rushed to hospital in Monte Carlo, but was transferred to Nice, where neurosurgeons operated on him.
He remains in a critical condition and the Department of Foreign Affairs is providing consular assistance to his family.
