An Australian tourist critically injured in a scooter crash in Bali has arrived in Brisbane overnight for emergency treatment.
Promising rugby player Jacob Mabb suffered serious brain injuries when he came off his scooter on the holiday island on Sunday.
The 21-year-old’s family launched a GoFundMe page in a bid to raise $50,000 to bring Mr Mabb back to Australia.
In just a few days, Mr Mabb’s family managed to raise that amount to bring him home before their insurer agreed to cover the $125,000 flight.
“We are pleased to confirm that Jacob’s flight back to Australia will be fully insured,” a family spokesperson posted.
“All donations will continue to go directly to the Mabb family to help pay for all medically related finances, loss of income, travel expenses and other costs associated with the incident.
“The Mabb family are incredibly grateful for everything that has been done for them. “Thank you for all your support.”
Mr Mabb’s parents had rushed to be by their son’s bedside in Bali and were on the emergency flight home with their son.
Mr Mabb’s plane touched down in Brisbane around 2am on Saturday morning after travelling at low altitude because of his condition.
The 21-year-old remains in a coma in the Royal Brisbane Hospital.
