LATEST STORY: Mackay man dies in hospital after horror Bali crash

BEFORE: Mr Braddick's sister Daneile said the family received the news yesterday morning that the LifeFlight air ambulance would be leaving for Bali. 

Mr Braddick's union called to let her know he was covered for travel insurance.   

"At this stage, there is no claim, we're still up for the bill until the claim is approved," she said.   

However, the insurance company is footing the $93,000 bill to bring Mr Braddick to a Brisbane hospital, with the claim to cover the cost at a later date.   

"That has been a real pressure off us," Ms Braddick said.   

"(We can) just get him home to Australia so we can worry about finances later.   

"We've had a win with him as well, his blood clot on his brain has removed itself, which means no more brain surgeries." 

Doctors have also lowered his coma medication and said he would be able to hear.    

"We're really excited about that," Ms Braddick said.    "In three days it feels like we've come a long way."
