A young Melbourne man remains in a coma after being seriously injured during a camping trip that went terribly wrong.
Sam Darby fights for life in intensive care, almost two weeks after he was flown to the hospital with a broken hip, broken skull and bleeding in the brain.
Originally from Junee in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Darby moved to Melbourne to do an internship and had just started working for himself when a disaster occurred on February 8 during a camping trip.

His desperate partner Ebonie Leiva-Salas and his family constantly watch over to his hospital bed while the anxious wait for more definitive news about his future continues.
“We hope he will recover, but the reality is that we have no idea of the extent of his injuries, permanent or not, this is a frightening prospect,” Leiva-Salas wrote GoFundMe.
“Sam has been a fighter all his life, coming against the NSW to Melbourne against all odds, as many young people do in the hope of a better future and he completed his apprenticeship and is now working for himself, but the the battle he is waging today is bigger than anyone. ”

The fundraising page has raised nearly $ 6,500 in less than 24 hours to help pay for unforeseen expenses.
Darby was described by his partner as a loving son for his mother Lorraine and brother and a great uncle for his three nieces.
“He has always been the friend who would always be there when a partner was in need and really is the love of my life and best friend,” Leiva-Salas wrote.
“I ask you to pray for our Sam if you believe in a God.
“We live in the hope that one day we will see this as a distant memory of a time when life’s challenges have made us stronger.”
