Friends and family of battling Conor set up Facebook support group
5:30pm Tuesday 19th June 2012 in Local
A FACEBOOK group has been set up in honour of the teenager who was brutally attacked on Friday.
The Justice for Conor Southall page has already attracted over 350 people who have been leaving messages of support for their 17-year-old friend Conor Southall and his family.
The Oldbury Academy pupil is fighting for his life in hospital and friends and family have been at his bedside since he was admitted.
Family, friends and schoolmates flooded the Facebook group page with messages, songs and prayers for the teenager.
Laura Burrett said: “I bet you never realised you have so many people that care, babe, you've got to be the most thought about lad in the whole of Oldbury right about now.
“Come on Con, in all the time I've known you, you've never backed down and this is a fight you cannot loose, everyone is thinking of you and my thoughts are with you and your family.”
Billie Marie said: “Come on babe, look how much support you have, all you have got to do is open those blue eyes of yours and prove to us just how strong you really are.”
The group was set up the day after Conor had been found lying unconscious on Cocksheds Lane near to Malt Mill Lane and Olive Lane after being reportedly being in a row with three men.
