West Ham fans smash fundraising target for 19-year-old supporter who got injured in Prague
West Ham fans have smashed a fundraising target for a 19-year-old fan who remains hospitalised in Prague.
The Hammers triumphed over Fiorentina on Wednesday night - and ended their 43-year wait for a major trophy - after a late Jarrod Bowen strike wrapped up a 2-1 win for them in Prague.
However, the evening was marred for one travelling family after their son was involved in an incident that has left him in hospital and unable to return to England.
Hammers fanConnor Reid, 19, attended the game in Prague with his dad, Alex, before falling off a wall that had a 'five metre drop'.
Details on the GoFundMe page claim that the impact caused a fractured skull and a bleed in the brain, and that doctor's were forced to remove Reid's spleen.
A target of 1,000 was set and was quickly smashed by thousands of Hammers supporters
An initial target was set for 1,000 but, after just 17 hours, the total now stands at 3,151 after thousands of Hammers fans showed their support.
