Teenager who was shot in the face point-blank with a paint gun at drink-fuelled ‘UV paint party’ risks going blind after his eyes were ‘split like nutshells’

A Scottish teenager has had his eyes ‘split in two’ after he was blasted in the face by a paint gun in Magaluf. 

Dillon Connery, 18, was smashed in the eyes during a UV paint night at the party destination’s Carwash Club. 

The security firm trainee suffered the horror injury on Wednesday last week, shortly after he arrived in Magaluf with six friends.

His mother Ashleigh Connery said Dillon’s eyes had been ‘obliterated and destroyed’ and he will need urgent treatment at a hospital in Scotland, STV reported.

She told the broadcaster: ‘The paint party had involved a ‘hand-made weapon’ which went full pelt and close range into the teenager’s eyes ‘like a nutshell’. 

The 42-year-old, who went to Magaluf after her son’s injury, initially thought he had been attacked because England’s World Cup semi-final was on. 

He was apparently hurt after a stream of liquid from the ‘stage-mounted’ paint gun fired into his face, the Sun reported.  

The surgeon could not believe how powerfully he had been hit, she said. Spanish police are now reported to be investigating.

She said: ‘His friends went to the bar and Dylan was by himself for five minutes. His eyes have been shattered. 

‘The surgeon was very upset and had never seen anything like this before. The translator had said his eyes had been obliterated and destroyed.’ 

Ms Connery said the friends he had travelled with were ‘extremely shaken’ but had rallied around Dillon.  

The teenager from Paisley will now reportedly have treatment at the Gartnavel Royal Hospital in Glasgow to save his eyesight.
