The mother of a Harry Styles fan who fell headfirst from a VIP viewing platform at a gig has claimed it's a miracle her son is alive.
Marion Hawkins says her son Dylan Wood is now making an excellent recovery after the dramatic incident which saw him plunge from the top tier of the Ibrox Stadium into the crowd below on Saturday night.
Dylan, 20, an electrical engineer from East Kilbride was on a work night out at the VIP box in the stadium when he lost his footing and fell over the barrier at the Scottish venue.
He was then rushed to hospital and placed on a ventilator in the high dependency unit at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and was unconscious.
However, Marion – who said seeing a video of his fall made her feel sick – says he will now be allowed home after being very lucky to escape with
But miraculously he's now making an excellent recovery and is expected to be allowed home later today, with black eyes, bruising and a concussion.
Speaking to Lanarkshire Live she said: "We didn't know what injuries he had so he was put on a ventilator to keep him stable. It was touch and go that night but the scans came back all clear and he has no broken bones.
"It's a complete miracle he's still here, walking away with just cuts and scrapes. I was ill watching the video of it.
"Dylan was crying on the phone to me today, I think it's just hitting home for him how serious it was and how close he got to not being here."
Horrified onlookers saw Dylan plunge into the crowd below from the Club Deck at the stadium as the show reached its final few songs.
Marion explained: "Dylan told me he was leaning up against the bannister in the VIP box and remembered thinking it was quite low down.
"He can't remember exactly, it's a bit of a blur, but he thinks he went to lean against it, misjudged it and fell back. It all just happened so quickly.
"He was knocked out and remembers coming to and getting a fright as people were grabbing at him. Paramedics were called and they got him out of there and worked on him in the ambulance before taking him to hospital."
The mum of four also admitted feeling panic as she rushed to be by her son's side.
She added: "I just panicked when I got the call and drove straight there. But he's doing good now and I hope to get him home today, I need him home.
"I can't stop thinking about it. I hope it was just a freak accident but I'll be fuming if it turns out the barrier was too low and someone is at fault.
"The main thing is he's okay. He's a very lucky boy."
