With more people travelling the globe, safety can sometimes be compromised, as highlighted by the scary case of a Singaporean couple in Bali recently.

Mr Eugene Aathar and Ms Dolly Ho (above) at the airport with a MediVac Asia representative (in red) and an airport ground employee.

Eugene Aathar, 24, shared that he and his wife had been returning to La Vie Villa in Kuta on a scooter after 2am on May 6.

Dolly Ho, 22, was riding pillion and using Google Maps on her Samsung S10 when the smartphone got snatched by two men on a motorcycle.

The men also kicked the scooter before fleeing, causing the couple to fall off.

Eugene sustained minor injuries, but Dolly had a concussion and a fractured shoulder in addition to memory loss.
