TWO mothers are back in Mandurah starting a long road to recovery after they were involved in a serious quad bike crash in Kalbarri.
Juanita Orr and her friend Chloe Bolwell were injured in the crash in Lucky Bay. They fell 20m on a razor back dune.
Ms Orr’s leg was crushed under the bike during a three-hour wait for help to arrive.
Ms Bolwell fractured her back in six places.
Doctors did everything possible to save Ms Orr’s right leg, but there was a risk of infection. Her lower right leg had to be amputated.
Ms Orr now uses a wheelchair and plans to get a prosthetic leg.
She has two children and two stepchildren. Her partner had to stop work to care for their family full-time.
Friends have set up a Gofundme page to help with the financial costs of Ms Orr’s rehabilitation.
