Spinal victim stable



THE 41-YEAR-OLD Copmanhurst man who was hospitalised with serious spinal injuries after a brawl outside a Sydney hotel on Anzac Day is in a stable condition.

A Westmead Hospital public affairs spokesperson yesterday declined to comment on whether the man had sustained permanent injuries.

The patient was flown to Westmead Hospital on Tuesday night after a fall outside the Lucky Australian Hotel at St Mary's left him with a critical neck injury and without feeling below the waist.

Police have not yet released the man's name and detectives are still investigating the matter.

The Daily Examiner contacted the Lucky Australian, however the hotelier refused to discuss the incident.

A media statement released on Tuesday from CareFlight stated that the man fell and hit his head outside the hotel following a dispute over an Anzac Day two-up game.
