Man in coma after attack from Mean Fiddler guards, sister says

The sister of a man who is in an induced coma after sustaining head injuries at the Mean Fiddler in the early hours of Sunday morning says he was assaulted by security guards at the club.

Nicole Sims, who contacted the News today (Monday, July 30) said her 26-year-old brother Steven Sims is in hospital after the assault.

She said he and her other brother Michael Sims, 24, were involved in a fight with two other men outside the club when they were "attacked" by 15 security guards.

A manager at the Mean Fiddler said the club has no comment on the incident.

The club has previously been named as one of the most violent in Sydney.

A Westmead Hospital spokeswoman said Mr Sims was in a stable condition.

Police allege Mr Sims fell over during the altercation, hit his head and fractured his skull.

Ms Sims said he sustained the injuries during an attack by the security guards.

She said he was punched in the face by a guard and suffered a broken jaw.

Ms Sims said that her other brother also suffered broken ribs and a fractured eye socket.

The hospital spokeswoman said Michael Sims was not admitted to hospital.
