A BRITISH couple are fighting for their lives after they were involved in a moped crash while on a “holiday of a lifetime”.

Joella Senior, 27, and Alex Hoyle, 29, are in a critical condition in a hospital in Bali after their Honda scooter collided with a car in Kerobokan, North Kuta, in the evening of June 12.

Mr Hoyle, from West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, is currently in a coma having smashed his head, fracturing his jaw and breaking his cheek bone.

His liver and lungs are also damaged.

He underwent a six-hour operation on June 16 to stabilise bones attached to his ribs.

Mr Hoyle needs further extensive surgery to repair serious fractures to his jaw, cheekbone and temporal bones, although it is now known when he will be fit enough to undergo the procedure.

Ms Senior, a social media executive from Loughborough, is in a slightly better condition and is able to talk after undergoing surgery on her broken arm, damaged rib cage and fractured pelvis.

She has also had operations on her collarbone and cheek bone.

Georgie Steel, 26, a close friend of the couple and she was “in utter disbelief”.

She told the Nottingham Post: “Me and my partner Oli chatted to them that day and they were both having the best time on a holiday of a lifetime.

“They’d gone out for two weeks in Bali on their first proper getaway together, and this happened on their third day.

“I knew something was serious when I was asked to get Alex’s mother’s phone number.

“I’m best friends with Joella and Oli is best friends with Alex, and have been all their lives.

“We were thinking they can’t have been in an accident.”

Mr Hoyle’s family are currently at his bedside, while Ms Senior’s family will be making the journey to Bali soon although her mother is having trouble getting an emergency passport.

The Hoyle family said in an email they were “encouraged by the excellent surgical work undertaken so far to both”.

“All family and friends are deeply touched by the generosity, love and best wishes they are receiving from friends, family and even complete strangers,” the family statement said.

“It is amazing to the family just how caring and generous people can be in these difficult economic times for us all.”
