Hello guys. I'm Daniels Dad and I wrote the post on Liverpool FC Facebook page at about half one this morning. Obviously I'm struggling to sleep at the moment. I just wanted to pay respect to the way I was treated by both the staff and police at what was the worst moment of my life. Daniel was a severely disabled young man, he was 25yrs old. He was born with two holes in his heart but was able bodied at this point but had a corrective surgery operation at the age of six months old. Unfortunately he was a victim of medical negligence and the operation was a disaster. He suffered massive brain injury during the operation which left him as a quadriplegic cerebral palsy sufferer. He was left blind and epileptic so his life became a real struggle for him. He was a real fighter tho and outlived all life expectancy predictions. On Sunday he died from a cardiac arrest. I'm happy in the knowledge that he didn't suffer s he never regained consciousness and fell asleep peacefully. I described in my post the brilliant way I was looked after whilst at Anfield as I got a phone call from my older son as I was entering Anfield. The post I wrote has gone viral with thousands of comments of support, not only from Liverpool fans but from all over the country. I've had over 120 pm's alone. Liverpool fans first suggested clapping for a minute at the 25 min mark in the replay. If that was to happen I for one would be very proud as would his family. I hope to be there for the game dependant on Daniels funeral which hasn't been arranged yet. Thank you to all those football fans that have messaged or commented on various sites. I have been completely humbled. Thank you Kevin May
So sorry to hear of your loss, I can't imagine what you are going through. Glad to hear you were well looked after in your time of need. I really hope the applause on 25 minutes will go ahead and provide you and your family with some comfort that you are being thought of
RIP Daniel and thoughts to all your friends and family at this difficult time Kevin. This would be a great idea for the replay, hopefully the club will address this further via social media etc.. Would be a great thing on the 25th min.
I was terribly sad to read the post on Liverpool's Facebook. Even more so having read your post above Kevin. Truly heart wrenching. I hope the club acknowledge this and put something in the program and announce it. I'm sure they will. RIP Daniel.
