It is a costly affair for the family to get the 22-year-old Norwegian Eric Bruem who is severely injured at a local hospital in Thailand back to Norway, says Doctor Terje Erlid.
But he along with another colleague is on a mission to bring the unfortunate man home. The two left Norway on Wednesday on a plane to Thailand.
“We have reached an agreement with SAS to get the Norwegian home. We’ll be back in Norway on Saturday,” said Erlid.
According to a Norwegian news agency, the young man is scheduled to be admitted to St. Olav’s Hospital in Trondheim.
“I have contributed several times to get home Norwegians or others from abroad. There are many who end up in hospitals abroad without travel insurance. I’ve previously been getting home a Norwegian from Florida to St. Olav’s Hospital,” the doctor added.
The 22-year-old was injured in a car accident while on holiday near Bangkok three weeks ago. The car aquaplaned and hit the crash barrier between the lanes. The others in the car were slightly injured, while the 22-year-old suffered head injuries and is now in a coma.
