"An ambulance was rung to someone saying they heard a disturbance.
"He spent two days unconscious and was classed as an unknown male.
"When he woke he remembered his brother's number and the hospital got in touch as he had no idea what went on.
"He is still not with it properly.
"My son is a drug user so I don't know if he fell or was attacked. It was broad daylight.
