Their nephew, Riley Cox, has set up the GoFundMe page to cover their enormous medical bills.
“Lorna & Dicko have spent their whole lives caring and looking after others and now they need us,” Riley says.
“They are two of the most caring, kind, determined and positive people, that even during retirement, live life to the fullest, travelling to the other side of the world on a dream holiday.”
Riley says all funds donated will help cover medical costs and repatriation to Australia, as well as ongoing rehab costs.
“Due to the severity of their injuries we don’t know how long it will be until we can bring them home, but we do know it will be a long recovery in Austria away from family and friends, followed by a long healing journey back home in Australia,” he says.
