A three-year-old girl from Sydney, Australia, is in an induced coma after a near-drowning accident in a pool while holidaying with her family in Bali, Indonesia, on Sunday morning (23 July).
According to reports, Kawa Sweeney was recoveringl at a Perth hospital.
She was brought to Princess Margaret Hospital in Perth in an air ambulance from Bali. Her parents Dee Tang and Desmond Sweeney raised money through crowdfunding for the air ambulance that cost them around $42,000.
More funds are reportedly pouring in to help the parents continue the toddler's treatment, who was pulled out of the pool at a Balinese villa in an unconscious state. There are few details of the accident.
The GoFundMe campaign for Kawa has already raised more than $80,000, according to her aunt Christine Walsh who thanked all the donors on behalf of the family. She also told media that the family had initially thought the medical expenses would be covered by their travel insurance, but they later discovered the insurance did not cover an emergency flight back to Australia.
A friend of the family then created the GoFundMe page to help fund their return.
"Update on my beautiful niece, she has arrived back in Perth and now at PMH," Walsh wrote on the GoFundMe page on Tuesday (25 July).
"She is in an induced coma and dr are running tests on her. Thank you all again for your support, prayers and wishes during this time. So blessed to have so much [love] come our way."
