A BRIT dad was robbed as he lay dying in the middle of a road – moments after he had been run over twice.
Dean Millers, 29, from Manchester, was left with so many injuries, he was only recognisable from his tattoos, his partner Emily Clarke, 24, revealed.
Emily said: “It was horrible. And when I saw him, he was a mess. I burst into tears. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”
Dean suffered 26 broken bones on what was his first ever holiday abroad.
He flew to the Spanish hotel resort Lloret de Mar, with Emily, their kids Ava-Rae, three and Halleé-Rae, two and his grandma Pamela, 69, on May 21.
But he was left fighting for his life, in a coma and on a ventilator after he popped to the shop to get juice and biscuits for his daughters.
He was first thrown into the air as he was struck by a car on a zebra crossing.
Moments later another driver ran over him, and twisted thugs used this opportunity to steal his wallet.
Emily, who heard the initial smash, said: “All I could see was a man in the road and while I couldn’t tell it was Dean, I knew it was him,.
“The hotel phone started ringing and they asked if I could come down. It was absolutely awful.”
Dean was airlifted to hospital in Girona for life-saving surgery to repair 26 fractures and a broken pelvis.
He also lost his bottom teeth, broke his fingers, and suffered kidney damage.
Five days later Emily was forced to leave him and return to England with their kids.
She has since flown back and forth to sign consent form for endless operations – and fears Dean could be in hospital in Spain for months.
The family has travel insurance for Dean’s care, but it doesn’t cover Emily’s flights to see him to sign the forms, or her accommodation and transport while she’s there.
She has launched a crowdfunding page asking for just £3,000, and has so far raised £1,130.
Emily added: “I had a chance to speak to him when I went back. He knows he is in Spain, he remembers being at the beach, but that’s about it.
“It’s heartbreaking to have to leave him there, but I have to think of the kids. They need me.”
