COVENTRY singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor is in a serious condition after a medical episode.
She was found at her home in south west France last Sunday and, after been taken to hospital, it was discovered she had bleeding on the brain.
Hazel was then transferred t a major hospital so her condition could be more effectively monitored.
At the time it was ‘touch and go’ and she was put in an induced coma for 24 hours.
She was brought out of that a day later and has since been showing a lot of progress.
Her brother Neil said, although she was tough and responding to treatment, her recovery was going to take a whle.
“She’s receiving the best of care and I thank the French medical service there for taking such good care of her.
“Also a big thanks and appreciation go to Pete and Tony who were on the spot to help and have been my liaison all through this time and have been updating me daily about Hazel’s condition.”
He has called for positive thoughts, vibes and intentions from everyone to aid her recovery.
“She’s going to need patience from us and from herself, I’ve already learned that she’s started to show her usual feistiness.”
He added there would be separate notifications from Hazel’s management relating to tour dates and shows.
He concluded by saying: “Thanks for your love of my dear sister.”
Hazel had several hit singles in the 1980s, including ‘Eighth Day’ and ‘Will You’ which reached the top ten in the UK charts.
An actress, as well as a singer-songwriter, she has also appeared in a number of films.
