Peter Hughes First Interview – Bali Bombings – 12 October 2002

Peter Hughes, Principle of the Peter Hughes Burn Foundation – first interview on 12th October 2002 at Sanglah Public Hospital, Denpasar, Bali.


He literally took our breath away when we heard him quietly tell rescuers he was okay and to help those worse off than him. Looking at him, we  could see that he was badly injured himself. And indeed he was.


Later, he lapsed into a month-long coma during which he briefly died three times while on life support. He later went on a long recovery program under the tough love of Australian of the Year Dr Fiona Wood.


Today Peter is making the most of life and besides running a successful roofing business, Peter is still in demand nationally as a public speaker.
