Australian doctors and nurses told yesterday of treating burns and injuries reminiscent of a war zone, as hospitals struggled to cope with the large number of wounded repatriated after the Bali bombings. Peter Haertsch, a leading burns specialist at Sydney's Concord Hospital, described the injuries suffered by two of the bombing victims as the worst he had seen. One of the patients, a 29-year-old woman from Melbourne, had burns to more than 80 per cent of her body. The other, a 26-year-old man from the Gold Coast in Queensland, had burns to 40 per cent of his body, as well as multiple fractures. 'The injuries consisted of blast injury, penetrating wounds, horrible penetrating wounds from things like wood and shrapnel and tin. They're the sort of thing that you would only see in a war-like situation,' Dr Haertsch said. Hospitals said they were running short of artificial skin for grafting operations, with one woman alone needing A$60,000 (HK$250,000) worth of the material. After a two-day air evacuation, all 113 injured Australians had been evacuated to Darwin by yesterday, from where many were transferred to hospitals in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Some foreign nationals were also flown to Australia, including Germans and New Zealanders. Two patients who remained in Darwin were in a critical condition, with severe burns and head injuries. For the second day running, hospitals in Perth cancelled all non-essential surgery as staff prepared to treat 32 of the most severely injured victims. One woman died early yesterday. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade last night put the official Australian death toll at 30. Joy Fong, a clinical nurse from the Royal Perth Hospital, told local radio she had never seen such horrific injuries. 'A lot of them are traumatised psychologically, as well as physically,' she said. About 160 Australians are still unaccounted for, but the government said it hoped to have a better idea of the total number of dead within 24 hours. With fears that many of the bodies kept in makeshift morgues in Bali were decomposing in the extreme heat and humidity, the Royal Australian Air Force flew out five mobile refrigerators to help preserve human remains pulled from the bomb site. A disaster relief company has been contracted to repatriate the bodies once identified. The first corpses were expected to be flown back to Australia last night. Meanwhile, the exodus of Australian tourists from Bali continued, with hundreds returning home to be greeted by worried friends and relatives. Kerrie O'Neill, from Perth, said: 'I have never seen anything so horrific in all my life. It was like something out of Saving Private Ryan. It was like a war zone.' Many expressed their appreciation for their treatment by Balinese people and said they were concerned at the impact of the attacks on Bali's economy.
