The 23-year-old remains in a medically induced coma after his three storey fall from Ibiza airport´s car park. On arrival to the Nuestra Señora del Rosario Polyclinic Jansin´s injuries were life-threatening; he has made remarkable progress since then. A CT scan on Wednesday has revealed no signs of brain damage and his heart, liver and kidneys are functioning on their own.

His kidneys had initially failed due to toxins being released into the body as a result of the severity of his injuries which saw his hips, legs, arms and hands broken, fractures to his spine and every bone in his face broken.

A pressure drone placed inside his skull to relieve the pressure has also been removed, and with no immediate concern to his brain, he will be moved from the private clinic to Can Misses where should his condition remain stable he may then be transferred to Son Espases in Majorca.

Family by his side

His family would like their privacy respected at this difficult time, they are at his bedside and his mother Carol Butler told the Hull Daily Mail “It’s fantastic news.

“The CT scan shows no brain damage and the plan is now to move Jansin from this private clinic to an NHS style hospital on the island.

“It’s phenomenal the way he is fighting and while it’s still a very concerning situation right now, we are all feeling so much more positive and this news about his brain is such a relief. We feel lifted by this news.”

“The British consulate have been amazing and the work they have done behind the scenes in this difficult time has made such a big difference, as has the help of Rugby League Cares,” added Mrs Butler, who will remain on her own alongside Jansin when the family head back to Hull later this week.

“We know there are weeks, months ahead of treatment and operations, but this news has really lifted everyone.”


Almost £21,000 has already been donated in crowdfunding appeals which have been set up to help pay for the private treatment Jansin has received, the bill of which could easily be over £100,000.
