A Toronto woman recently suffered a serious head injury after falling overboard a catamaran while on vacation in Croatia. The 24-year old woman, Anna Leibenko, is in a coma and on life support in a Croatian hospital.
Anna did not have travel insurance and her family cannot afford her medical bills or evacuation costs to get her home. Her brother launched a social media campaign to raise the necessary funds to bring her back to Canada, which could amount to over $100,000.
This story is an unfortunate reminder of the importance of emergency medical and evacuation insurance while traveling overseas. More information about Anna and the effort to get her home can be found here.
