A Christchurch man is in a coma in Thailand after suffering horrific head injuries in a fall from an apartment building, the Irish media reports.

Robbie Robinson, 32, was injured in the fall 13 days ago after a night socialising with friends in Bangkok, says.

Robinson had stopped in Thailand on his way back to Christchurch, where he has lived for some years, after a month visiting family in Ireland. 

His Facebook profile says he is originally from Ashford, County Wicklow. 

He had reportedly left his keys inside his apartment and tried to climb on to the balcony, the Irish news website said. 

He lost his footing and fell several metres to the ground.

A source was quoted as saying his family was holding a bedside vigil and were "praying for a miracle".
