While on a trip recently, I got a first hand experience with the Australian healthcare system. Who would have thought that going to the beach could be so dangerous? The day at the beach with my family seemed unremarkable. We packed our beach bag, brought enough water, snorkels and beach towels. After a few hours of beautiful beach time, we headed back to the vehicle. On this short one kilometre trip back to the vehicle along a dry river bed, my left foot slipped off a stone into the one and only small mud patch along the path and down I went.
