Aussie Woman's Tragically Ironic Instagram Post Before Death

A young Aussie woman who died in a horror scooter crash while holidaying in Bali had just days before posted a video on Instagram of her riding through the island, apologising to her mum for not wearing a helmet.

Indonesian police say 26-year-old Ella Knights wasn't wearing a helmet when she fatally crashed on Wednesday, suffering serious injuries.

Less than a week ago she posted this video while happily riding on the back of a mate's scooter with the hashtag #nohelmet.


The Australian government's SmartTraveller website does have a lot of strong warnings about the dangers of using motorbikes in Bali, stating that a number of foreigners have been killed or seriously injuries in motorcycle accidents in tourist areas.

Ella's death has been reported to the Australian consulate in Bali and an autopsy will happen in the coming weeks to determine the exact cause of death.
