Bulgaria: Sunny Beach resort region dangerous and not fit to receive EU tourists?

Sunny Beach is the largest resort in Bulgaria, and is a purpose-built holiday town with hundreds of hotels, bars and restaurants.

Today, a tourist visiting from Britain is in intensive care after being attacked at this Bulgarian beach resort, BBC reported.

Adam Prosser, 27, of Fforestfach, Swansea, had been out for a meal with his girlfriend Kayley Harrison when she said he was set upon by a group of men in Sunny Beach.

He had to fly home for treatment after doctors in the EU member country of Bulgaria refused to treat him without a health insurance card.

He suffered swelling and bleeding on the brain and fractures to his skull.

Miss Harrison, 19, claims she was also attacked as she tried to help Mr. Prosser.

Mr. Prosser was treated at the scene by a nurse before being taken to hospital with suspected brain damage.

But paramedics refused to treat him so the couple made the 2,000-mile journey back home.

A check up at Swansea’s Morriston Hospital revealed the serious head injury and he has been referred to specialists in Cardiff.

Miss Harrison said Mr. Prosser was now in a stable condition but the attack had put the couple off going abroad “for life.”
