A shock that could have been fatal
According to media information, Tey Evans would have moved on two wheels in the south of Kuta at the time of the facts. It would have been attacked by three stray dogs.

The severity of his injuries and the great loss of blood made surgeons nervous. They would have claimed that Tey Evans would not survive the operation.
“I was told he had a 60 per cent chance of surviving. When they realized they didn’t have enough blood, that number dropped to 30,” Jessica Dennis told Yahoo News Australia. “I didn’t know there was such a chance that he wouldn’t make it, I had no idea and I don’t know if I’m grateful to him or not,” she added.

It’s crazy how many people you have to thank for Tey being alive today, it’s unbelievable”, had confided with emotion Jessica Dennis.
