An Irish woman (26) has been left in a serious condition in China following an accident on July 30.

Lydia Daly, from Celbridge, Co Kildare, left for China on February 9 and was working as an English teacher in Guangdong for the past six months.

It is believed that she had a serious fall on Saturday and is an induced coma but in a stable condition.

Her friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help her distressed family.

The GoFundMe page reads: “As some of you may already know, in the early hours of July 30 our friend Lydia suffered a serious accident that has left her hospitalised in Guangdong China. We are thankful that she is currently stable and recovering, but are of course desperately worried for her.

“This fund donates its proceedings to Lydia and her family. Separated by such a vast distance, we cannot help but feel helpless when the unimaginable happens to someone we dearly value and love.”

The distraught family have declined to comment any further on the accident at this time.
