American Travel Blogger Getting Medevac To California

An airplane is on the way to Bali to get Kaitlyn McCaffrey, an American travel blogger who was left in critical condition after getting into a moto-scooter accident.

The medevac team is scheduled to bring McCaffrey to a California hospital on August 18—if all goes as planned.

Thus far, the effort to get McCaffrey back stateside has been plagued with complications, including an insurance company that refused to pay to fly her across the globe, a trip the family estimates will cost about $250,000.

Furthermore, McCaffrey’s sister has been providing updates on Instagram about her condition, which has been flip-flopping between bad and worse.

The accident

McCaffrey had been staying in Bali for the past couple of months. On July 31, she was heading home to her apartment when she had “a terrible moto-scooter accident.” Two men found her on a remote road, and she was “alone, unconscious, broken and bleeding,” the Bring Kaitlyn Home campaign page on gofundme says.

McCaffrey was taken to a hospital in Denpasar. Initially, she was in a coma, but according to her sister’s updates, McCaffrey has recovered consciousness. But she has since been suffering from a range of medical problems, including pneumonia.

Although the family has expressed appreciation for the work of the medical staff in Bali, they believe that that facility has done the most that they can do and it is critical for her to be treated in the US.

They have found a hospital in northern California that agreed to accept her in its trauma unit. Her mother and sister live in the state.
