A college student who spent three months in a coma after allegedly being punched by a bouncer at a Miami Beach nightclub is getting $5 million from the club's ownership, his attorney said Wednesday.
The Opium Group, owners of Cameo Nightclub, have agreed to pay the money to 22-year-old Younness Adlan, who was visiting Miami Beach from Rhode Island when the alleged attack happened on New Year's Day.
NBC 6 emailed the Opium Group for comment Wednesday but has yet to hear back.
Adlan was outside the club when he was allegedly punched by bouncer Cody James Quaife. The punch caused him to fall back and hit his head on the sidewalk.
Adlan suffered multiple fractures to his skull and spent three months in a coma. He is able to move his arms and legs but is working to try to walk again and can't cook, bathe or go to the bathroom by himself.
Quaife, 34, was arrested and charged with felony battery in the incident. He has since bonded out of jail and his next hearing is scheduled for next month.
