An Accrington man is fighting for his life after a single punch to the head.
The 26-year-old was attacked as he walked along Queen Victoria Street in Blackburn at around 2am on Sunday (July 25).
The man, who has not been named by police, fell to the ground and hit his head on the road.
He suffered a serious head injury and has been in a medically-induced coma at the Royal Blackburn Hospital ever since.
A 19-year-old from Blackburn appeared at Blackburn Magistrates Court on Wednesday (July 28) charged with section 18 wounding with intent.
He was committed to Preston Crown Court for trial on Wednesday November 10 and was released on conditional bail.
