The young woman, who was allegedly drunk when the accident occurred, arrived to the hospital in serious conditions and is now in a coma, sources from Sharm International Hospital confirmed.  

Lieutenant Hatem Amin, head of South Sinai Police, told Youm 7 that the Ukrainian tourist, called Julia Gheldica, is suffering from acute brain hemorrage.

A source at the Ukrainian Embassy in Cairo told CairoScene that the consul is travelling to the coastal town today to investigate the incident. To cover the costs of medical care, a group of tourists in Sharm El Sheikh have reportedly began raising funds, although this was not confirmed by hospital sources.
