A general view of Bondi Junction.

The Irish man who had been found with a broken arm after being missing for five days in Sydney, Australia, has undergone two bouts of brain surgery and is in a critical condition.

Donie O’Sullivan, 33, is in intensive care at St Vincent’s Hospital in the city, according to the Irish Echo newspaper in Australia.

It is understood he suffered injuries in a fire stairwell in Bondi Junction’s East Tower.

The circumstances around how and when the Clare man got in to the East Tower in Bondi Junction are not known, but he had been found with a broken arm and was severely dehydrated.

His brother Johnnie said Donie could tell paramedics his name, address and mobile number.

The NSW Police had been alerted to Donie's disappearance and his family and friends had mounted their own search before Donie was found by the manager of the East Tower’s cleaning company.
