The heartbroken wife of Hector Diaz Albiter says he began suffering organ failure but she was forced to move him to private healthcare due to a lack of local hospital beds
A tropical diseases scientist is tragically fighting for his life in an induced coma after suffering multi-organ failure in Mexico.
Former University of Glasgow researcher Hector Diaz Albiter fell ill in the city of Villahermosa on January 27.
He forced to pay for private healthcare after his devastated wife Morvyn took him to their local hospital and told there were no beds left.
His organs began shutting down as he suffered acute pancreatitis, fluid in his lungs and an Acute Kidney Injury.
Medics placed him in a medically induced coma after he began developing cardiac in hospital and he is currently on dialysis.
Morvyn had to move her husband to a private facility but his health insurance tragically only covers the cost of one week of medical care.
His wife’s name is Morvyn. She is desperately trying to raise £50,000 to pay for his treatment in a bid to save his life.
Friend of the couple Alex Bowie has set up a Go Fund Me page which has raised almost £18,000 in just 24 hours.
Alex released a statement on the page on behalf of Morvyn, who moved to Hector’s native country with him in 2018, and other loved ones.
It reads: “Our friend Hector is a scientist investigating tropical diseases in Villahermosa, Tobasco, Mexico.
“He moved there in 2018 with his wife Morvyn to fulfil his dream of being an investigative scientist in his home country after previously working at the University of Glasgow, the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation in Rio De Janeiro and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
“Sadly, on January 27, Hector became seriously unwell.
Alex added, “He developed acute pancreatitis, fluid in his lungs and an Acute Kidney Injury.
“He had cardiac problems and required intubation.

“Despite arriving at the public hospital, due to lack of bed space, they were unable to treat him and he had to be admitted to a private hospital.
“Hector’s health insurance, through his work, provide only up to one million Mexican pesos coverage, just over Â£35,000, but the gravity of his illness means that this will only last about a week in intensive care.
