British father fighting for his life after being struck down with pneumonia ...

The family of a Brit left fighting for his life after being struck down with pneumonia during a dream holiday have launched a desperate plea for him to be flown off an island to a proper hospital.

Devastated Becky Mazur, 31, fears her husband Peter, 44, will not see another day as he fights for breath in a clinic in Cape Verde, Africa that does not have the facilities to treat him.

The couple initially flew out to the archipelago on April 2, with five-year-old son Oliver, for a two-week family holiday.

They were staying in five-star hotel, Rio Touareg, on the island of Boa Vista, where Peter, described as being in good health beforehand, fell ill.

But she claims she has had 'no help'- and that the untreated pneumonia has now spread to cover almost Peter's entire left lung.
