A New Zealand man who suffered a life-threatening brain aneurysm in Thailand is making positive progress and awaiting clearance for his next procedure.

 

Hamish Wickens, 45, suffered the brain aneurysm on his first night on holiday in Phuket.

 

He has since undergone a six-hour operation to clip the aneurysm, which was discovered to be incomplete, and was in the intensive care high dependency unit of a local hospital.

 

However, on Thursday evening, Wickens' sister Rachel Thorburn said a CT scan had shown positive progress, and Wickens had been moved to a general ward.
