Man in RPH after motorbike crash in Bali

A 49-year-old Perth man is in a serious but stable condition at Royal Perth Hospital after he was flown from Bali overnight.

The man sustained traumatic brain injuries when he fell off a motorbike on the holiday island.

CareFlight director Ian Badham said the man had undergone neurosurgery at a Bali hospital following the crash before his family arranged for one of the organisation’s medijets to transport the man home for treatment.

Mr Badham said the man arrived at Perth International Airport at 5.15am this morning accompanied by a doctor, nurse and his father.

He was taken to Royal Perth Hospital by St John Ambulance

It is not known whether the man was on a family holiday or if his father travelled to the island after the accident.

It is understood the man is in a stable condition.

Mr Badham said CareFlight undertook approximately 400 international flights a year, with Indonesia being a “regular destination” for its international service.

A Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman said the department did not have any record of the incident and had provided any consular assistance to the man or his family.
