Care home worker, 46, is beaten to pulp after stepping in to save 11-year-old son from bullies

A care home worker, 46, was beaten to a pulp by a group of thugs after he stepped in to save his 11-year-old son from teenage bullies in the park.

Alan Willson, 46, sprinted from his home in Worthing, West Sussex, to nearby Longcroft Park when he heard a group were throwing his son to the floor on Easter Sunday.

But when he tried to intervene he was knocked unconscious – before his head was hit with an object as his horrified son watched.

Mr Willson suffered lung trauma, broken bones and fractures to his spine – and had to have surgery on his brain in Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

He is now in a coma fighting for his life. 

Five youths – who cannot be named due to their age – have been arrested for attempted murder and grievous bodily harm with intent.

Four were arrested on Sunday and another on Monday. All five have been since been bailed – but are under ‘strict conditions’ including a ban on meeting each other and curfews.

A JustGiving fundraiser has been set up by the Willsons’ family friend Cheryl Edwards.

It set out to raise only £500 to ‘support the family’ with expenses such as travel.

But donations have snowballed with the grand total now standing at £7,603.
