The post said that Hazel O’Connor was found unresponsive in her home in the south west of France.
Hazel was “touch and go”
The post reads, “She was taken to her local hospital, where it was determined that she’d had a bleeding on the brain and that she should be transferred to a major hospital where her condition could more effectively monitored”.
It also added, “On Sunday things were touch and go, and the next 24 hours would determine how her recovery may go”.
It also said that Hazel was placed into an “induced coma”. However, she had been reportedly “showing a lot of progress”, having been placed in the coma for a day.
Adding that his sister had been receiving “the best of care”, Neil O’Connor did concede that “her recovery is going to take a while”.
His post concluded by saying, “All positive thoughts, vibes, [and good] intentions are appreciated”.
