Daisy Kelliher revealed that her sister was seriously injured during a moped accident, and it’s a “miracle” that she’s alive.

On June 19, the Below Deck Sailing Yacht star, 37, posted on Instagram sharing that two and a half weeks ago her younger sister Bonnie was hospitalized after the accident, which happened during her vacation in Thailand.

“Without going too much into the specifics, she has had several surgeries including her chest, face and brain and two emergency surgeries one when it happened and one over the weekend and a 12 hour surgery last week,” she explained. “She got discharged from ICU over the weekend and is now in a normal room and looking like another two weeks in hospital, possibly longer.”

Kelliher said she arrived in Thailand a few days ago to support her sister and parents, calling it “quite an ordeal.”

“I am sat by her side on her 34th birthday, with the extent of her injuries it’s quite a miracle she’s alive and we all feel optimistic and positive with time she will make a full recovery,” she wrote.

The chief stewardess then sent a message to her followers, warning them not to get on a moped if they’re not wearing a helmet or have insurance. She said her family has seen several people admitted to the hospital who haven’t been as lucky as her sister.

Kelliher also urged people to “always look out for your friends.”

“If it hadn’t have been for Bonnie’s friend who she met out here things could have been different,” she said. “It was her who realized Bonnie didn’t come home, who found her in the hospital (as she had no phone) and was able to reach us. If it wasn’t for her things could have been different. She was so fast acting and a huge support to my family.”

“Bonnie is in a fantastic hospital and the staff have been incredible,”  Kelliher added. “There’s a long road to recovery but we have had so much support. We hope by sharing this story it may save a life or save another person or family having to go through this. We can’t quite believe how close we were to losing her.”

“We love you Bonnie happy birthday 🥳” her message concluded.
