Bali trip becomes nightmare for Perth man Lachie Hunt as he’s bashed on holiday as GoFundme started

Aussie may never walk again after his dream Bali holiday turned to horror when he was bashed on the street and left for dead:

  • Perth local Lachie Hunt was beaten during a holiday in Bali
  • He is in hospital with a broken femur, bleeding on the brain
  • A friend claims Lachie was mugged when he was attacked

An Australian man is fighting for his life in hospital after he was ruthlessly beaten on the streets of Bali.

Lachie Hunt, from Perth, Western Australia, was attacked and mugged in the tourist hotspot earlier this week.

He was rushed to BIMC Hospital in Kuta suffering a broken leg, bleeding on the brain and a potentially fractured spine.

Lachie’s mother, Melissa, has flown to Bali to be by her son’s bedside as he slowly recovers.

Nursing staff revealed they had spoken to Lachie and his mother after he woke up on Saturday morning, the West Australian reported. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Lachie’s friend, Jarrad Visser, to cover his friend’s hospital bills. 

‘Sounds like he was mugged and bashed pretty good, he can’t remember much,’ he wrote.  

‘He’s pretty banged up all round. He’s in hospital in BIMC Bali getting the best care but the best care is bloody expensive. So asking if you are able to help out in anyway to dig deep it would go along way and mean a lot to the family.’

He said Lachie had a long road ahead of him and listed his horror injuries.

‘I’m in contact with his mum Mel she’s over there taking good care of him and his injuries are a potential fractured back and he has bleeding on the brain,’ Mr Visser wrote.

Mr Visser shared the link to the GoFundMe to Facebook and wrote: ‘Lachie needs our help people. If you can help out would mean a lot.’ 

Lachie appears to have visited Bali a number of times, even wishing in one post he could move to the Indonesian paradise. 

‘One day I’ll get to call this place home…,’ he wrote on Instagram.

The GoFundMe page to support Lachie has already raised more than $17,000.
