British chef beaten and left for dead in Dolomite ski resort

Police are trying to piece together the events that led to a British chef being beaten up and left for dead in a ski resort in the Italian Dolomites.

Officers spoke to John Harris, 45, from Cornwall, yesterday after he was found unconscious in a resort car park in freezing temperatures wearing just a singlet, according to the Guardian.

Harris, a chalet cook, had been celebrating the end of the ski season with colleagues working for UK tour operator Crystal in Canazei, near Trento.

After a barbeque, the group went to celebrate in a local bar. While most of his colleagues left at 2.30am, Harris is understood to have stayed on and claims he does not remember what happened next.

It is thought that he was attacked in the car park with a wooden railing torn from a nearby house, leaving him with broken ribs, a damaged spleen and multiple bruises. He was found at 6.30am suffering from hypothermia.

Police are interviewing a local man in connection with the attack.
