A 24-year-old British woman who sustained serious injuries on Thursday after falling and hitting her head in a bar in the Lagana resort on the Ionian island of Zakynthos remained in critical condition on Friday.

The woman was flown to the Thriasio Hospital in Elefsina, near Athens, aboard a C-130 transport aircraft after medics at Zakynthos’s general hospital deemed that she required special treatment.
