In less than 24 hours a Go Fund Me page set up to help Newcastle champion body-boarder Ryan Duck has raised more than $23,000.
Ryan was allegedly attacked and stabbed multiple times by a man while he was fishing with colleagues in Pacific Palms near Forster just after midnight on Monday.
The 35-year-old suffered stab wounds to his arms and abdomen and was airlifted to the John Hunter Hospital in a critical condition.
He has since undergone surgery ans the man allegedly responsible has been arrested.
Ryan’s journey back to health is going to be a long one needing ongoing care, rehabilitation and physiotherapy.
The Go Fund Me page has been set up by the Berry Brothers – Ryan is also the general manager at Bartholemews, formally Babylon, in Newcastle.
