Son's plea for help as dad fights for life

A SUNSHINE Coast man is pleading for help as his dad fights for life after a motorbike crash in the hinterland.

Dakoda Puls said his "family orientated" dad Vincent Waters was in a critical condition in an induced coma after he crashed at Booroobin on May 13.

The Nambour man, in his 60s, suffered head and chest injuries and was flown to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital where he has remained in the intensive care unit.

Mr Puls said his mother wasn't working so that she could be close to Mr Waters.

The cost of accommodation and ongoing mortgage repayments led him to ask for help.

"He is a very family orientated man and he is the best dad you could ever imagine," Mr Puls wrote in a GoFundMe page set up for his father.

"So please we need your help so that we can be with him in his time of need as he has always been there when we needed him."

It's expected Mr Waters will face months of rehabilitation before he is able to return to the Coast.

The GoFundMe page was set up two days ago and $1500 has been raised for the family so far.
