FAMILY ON DOLPHIN TRIP IN HORROR SMASH.
A FAMILY who flew to America so their terminally ill son could swim with dolphins have been involved in a horrific car crash.
Gary Leith, four - who has Joubert Syndrome - and sisters Julie, 13, and Amanda, 12, are in hospital after the accident at 2am on Saturday, shortly after they arrived from Greenock. The girls are in critical condition and Gary is stable.
Dad Gary Devlin, 32, mum Sharon, 32, and sister Sophie, six, are in a hotel next to the hospital in Orlando, Florida.
Grandparents Kathleen and Joseph Devlin said the most seriously injured is Julie, who has bleeding in her liver.
Kathleen added: "They can't operate until they stop the bleeding.
"Wee Gary has bruising to his ribs. They're keeping him in because of his medical condition. Sophie has a broken collarbone and also a wrist fracture. Amanda has fluid in her lungs.
We're just so upset." Gary's genetic condition means that he cannot walk or talk and few sufferers live past eight.
The dream trip to America was paid for by people from Inverclyde, who raised pounds 8,500.
