A young man from Perth, who according to news reports, traveled to Bali to propose to his girlfriend, is now stuck in a Bali hospital, after getting into a fight and breaking his jaw.
Aden Field said he was attacked at La Favela bar in Seminyak in the early hours of Saturday morning, when he got into an argument with a group of men.
One of the unknown men punched Field from behind in the back of the head, and according to Field’s friends the force of the blow was so strong it broke his jaw in three places.
The 23-year-old was rushed into surgery and has had 23 screws and three metal plates inserted into his jaw.
Mr Field says he had flown to Bali at the last minute to surprise his fiancé and forgot to book travel insurance.
His surgery is now already costing more than $25,000 and is mounting by the day. Friends have started a gofund page to help pay for his hospital costs.
Doctors have told his family he will need to spend at least the next week in hospital to recover and his mother has flown over to be with him.
