Cork man put in coma by one-punch Sydney attack leaves intensive care

Jason Cierans will need surgery, but is awake and responsive.

THE CORK MAN who was put into a coma after a one-punch attack in Sydney has left intensive care.

29-year-old Jason Cierans has been in hospital since being punched in the eastern Sydney suburb of Bondi Junction on 22 August.

He woke from the coma on Tuesday and was moved to a neurology unit in recent days.

His family told the Evening Echo that he will require further surgery, but is “definitely on the mend”.

Earlier this week, his aunt Fidelma spoke to Cork’s RedFm and said the family were overjoyed.

“The relief is unbelievable, we were actually jumping for joy yesterday at the thought of our nephew, her son my mum’s grandchild opening his eyes and everything. All our prayers have been answered all week.”

A 30-year-old Argentinian national named Adrian Gabriel Martinez has been charged with recklessly causing grievous bodily harm following the attack.

A fundraising page has been established to help the Cierans family and has already raised thousands of euro.
