To provide better medical care and increase his chances of recovery, Daniel has been transferred from Phuket to Bangkok via a Medevac flight. Doctors at Samitivej Hospital in the capital have expressed more optimism about his prospects. Meanwhile, Daniel's mother, along with a support group in Phuket and global well-wishers, has rallied to raise ฿3 million to cover his medical expenses.
As of now, Daniel remains in a coma at Samitivej Hospital, where doctors are closely monitoring his condition. While the Bangkok medical team appears more positive about his prognosis, a specific outcome is yet to be determined. Ms. Liudmyla Andreieva, Daniel's mother, expressed gratitude for the support received but emphasized that it is still too early for a definitive prognosis.
Support for Daniel has emerged from various communities, including Ukrainians, Russians, Thais, and individuals worldwide. The fundraising efforts aim to bring him back home to his family. The campaign organizers stress that every contribution, whether financial or through social media sharing, plays a significant role in increasing Daniel's chances of recovery and demonstrates the kindness of humanity.
The incident occurred shortly after Ms. Liudmyla Andreieva and her children arrived in Phuket, seeking refuge from the conflict in Ukraine. It remains unclear what caused Daniel's condition and subsequent cardiac arrest, although he was seen diving into the pool earlier.
The Ukrainian family's insurance coverage did not extend to their first day at Vachira Hospital in Phuket, which is government-run. With intensive care treatment in Thailand costing ฿130,000 per day, the community's support is crucial in providing financial assistance for Daniel's ongoing medical care.
Sending messages of support to Daniel and Luidmyla is encouraged, as doctors believe he can hear speech and may exhibit reactions as his brain continues to develop. Your words of encouragement can make a meaningful impact on his healing process.
