Bali dog attack: Australian tourist set upon by animals while riding scooter: Tey Evans

Australian tourist on a Bali surf trip is fighting for life after being attacked by a pack of stray dogs while riding a scooter – just a month after getting engaged

  • Tey Evans, 35, was set upon by a pack of dogs while riding a scooter through Bali 
  • He dodged the dogs but it caused him to spin off the bike and crash into a slab
  • Mr Evans suffered severe injuries in the crash and was left in a coma for two days

An Aussie tourist on a Bali surf trip was left in a critical condition after being attacked by a pack of stray dogs while riding a scooter.

Tey Evans, 35, was enjoying the trip with friends but at the time of the horrific incident he was alone travelling through South Kuta.

He dodged the savage dogs but it caused him to spin off the bike and fall into a concrete slab.

Mr Evans suffered multiple broken ribs, a punctured lung, a ruptured spleen, a fractured elbow, vertebra and pelvis as well as a damaged kidney – all of which caused severe internal bleeding.

He was left in a coma for two days after the accident, which took place on August 25. 

It is understood he laid injured at the crash scene for some time before anyone realised what had happened.

His partner, Jessica Dennis, flew out to Bali as soon as she was informed of his accident. They had gotten engage just a month before. 

When he arrived at the hospital, doctors couldn’t find a pulse, Ms Dennis revealed, and he was rushed into surgery right away.

However, doctors found there wasn’t enough O-negative blood for him to make it through, leaving him with a low chance of survival. 

‘I got told it was a 60 per cent chance of him surviving. When they realised they didn’t have enough blood, that went down to 30,’ Ms Dennis told Yahoo News Australia.

‘I didn’t know it was such a high chance he wasn’t going to make it, I had no idea and I don’t know if I’m grateful for that or not.’

When she arrived at the hospital in Nusa Dua on Saturday, Ms Dennis was informed by medical staff that Mr Evans had narrowly survived an 11-hour surgery.

His survival was down to a bus full of locals being tested until they found the right blood type for Mr Evans.

Mr Evans is now out of ICU and in ‘really good care in general hospital’. 

The couple will remain in Bali for at least a month until he is able to fly home.

‘Now I realise how lucky we really are. If he wasn’t wearing that helmet things would be a lot different,’ Ms Dennis said.

He is expected to make a full recovery and ‘doctors are blown away’ by his progress.

Mr Evans got out of bed for the first time supported and assisted, taking a few steps before going back into bed – something doctors say is a very positive sign.

Despite the good news, the couple have had to postpone their February wedding so he has time to recover.
