Woman says leg was 'in bits and pieces' after hit by bus

A woman who was run over by a bus while on holiday celebrating her 30th birthday has relived the aftermath of the horrific accident and seeing her leg in 'bits and pieces'.

Stacey Liddle was riding a scooter through Thailand with her best friend when the vehicle ploughed into the Queensland resident, dragging her underneath and running her over.

'I remember looking down and thinking I might as well have not had a leg,' Ms Liddle told Nine News.

The incident occurred in Chalong, south of Phuket, on October 26. Ms Liddle and Sinead Markham were just three days into their trip.

'It is probably something I will relive every time I close my eyes,' she said. 

'When I realised how serious it was I just went blank and started screaming.'

She remains in a Phuket hospital, which her family have described as being full of ants, people sleeping on floors, rusted beds and staff who are upsetting patients.

'At one stage they were mistreating her and slapping her... they would slap her on the leg and just laugh,' Ms Liddle's cousin Katrina told Daily Mail Australia.

'It's a nightmare.' 

Despite local surgeons working around the clock to save the limb, they hold little hope. Ms Liddle hopes she can raise enough money through her Kickstarter to be transported back to Queensland and have Australian doctors attempt to rescue the leg.
