The four members of a family were vacationing at a well-known ski resort one moment, and the next they were in mortal combat.

Midway through December, Dave Miln and his wife Clare were on a ski trip with their two young girls when tragedy struck.

A motorized snow blower struck the couple as they were driving their 3- and 1-year-old daughters to their ski lessons. A veteran of the Australian Defense Force Dave flung his body on top of his girls to shield them from the machine’s intake. Dave and the couple’s eldest both sustained serious wounds, but their youngest managed to escape unharmed.

Dave and Isla entered the machine and claims a GoFundMe. Rescuers had to pull Dave free for an hour.


He was awake the whole time.

When he arrived at the hospital, it was discovered that his wounds were too serious, and his legs would need to be amputated.

Dave sustained multiple shattered bones as a result of the event, in addition to being a double amputee. Since then, he’s had 10 operations.

His daughter Isla has been healing alongside him.

She needed three different surgeries due to breakage in both her legs and her pelvis. In the future, she might even require more.

Dave was transported medically to his native Australia, where he is making progress in his recovery. His wife, two daughters, and are all still recovering from the serious accident while they are back in Sydney.

“Isla is still in her wheelchair, but it seems like she’s slowly regaining her old personality, smiling more and being a little more assertive. Tsen Bogan, a family friend, and the GoFundMe organizer said of the young woman, “She is such a strong and brave girl.

More than AUD 70,000 has been raised through GoFundMe thus far. The money will be used by the family to make the adjustments Dave and Isla need to live more comfortably.

How quickly life may alter is terrifying. Pray for the Miln family as a group.
