An Australian real estate agent found unconscious on a Bali street was sent away from a hospital just hours before he died thanks to an unfortunate twist of fate, it has emerged.
Charlie John Bradley, 28, died in the early hours of Sunday morning outside Bhakti Vendanta health clinic in Kuta, southern Bali, three and a half hours after leaving the Finns Beach Club.
A nurse has revealed that two people had accompanied Bradley to the medical center, but he was turned away because the doctor on duty was treating someone else at the time.
“My doctor explained to the local guys over the phone that he is treating (an) emergency patient and (he) explained to (Bradley) move to another clinic or hospital,” she shared 7News.
Meanwhile, Mr. Bradley’s heartbroken girlfriend has paid tribute to her ‘greatest love’.

Mr Bradley, who is originally from Coventry in the UK, migrated from Coventry to Sydney in 2013
One message read, “You are always my favorite person and always will be. You are my absolute soul mate.’
In another he wrote: ‘I love you my dear, today I think of you, and how happy you make me, I am very grateful to you’.
Mr Bradley’s sister previously revealed that her brother called a friend late at night in the hours before his death.
Beth Bradley is desperate for answers about what happened to him between midnight when he left the club and around 3.40am when he was found dead.
“All we know at this point is that Charlie was at Finn’s Beach Club,” she said.
Mr Bradley had spent hours before his death at the popular entertainment venue Finn’s Beach Club (pictured, North Kuta Police are investigating the location outside Bhaktivedanta Clinic where Mr Bradley was found)
“It sounds like he arrived around 2pm and spent the day there with the friend he was traveling with and a group of people they had met.
“He left the room around 12:10 through the main exit. He walked down the street, one of the girls they’d been with in the group had helped Charlie into a cab,’ she explained.
She overheard the taxi driver say he knew where the villa he was staying at was 15 minutes from Finns.
“All we know at the time is that Charlie’s friend who was at the villa had three missed calls from Charlie at around 1:30am an hour later.
Ms Bradley told Daily Mail Australia she suspects her brother may have been a victim of methanol poisoning – after being assured by friends that no drugs had been used. Charlie is in the picture
“From there, all we know is that Charlie was found lying on the floor in the middle of the street.”
TIMELINE OF CHARLIE BRADLEY’S LAST NIGHT
Saturday April 15: Charlie Bradley spends the evening drinking at Finn’s Beach Club in North Kuta, South Bali, with a friend he traveled with from Australia and several others they met there.
10 p.m.: Mr. Bradley’s friend leaves the club to return to the villa. He stays with the group.
Sunday 16 April – 00.10 am: Mr. Bradley is seen in a taxi by a friend who overhears him giving his address to the driver. The driver knows where he is.
1:30 am: Mr. Bradley calls his friend three times via WhatsApp.
Time unknown: Mr Bradley is seen stumbling and staggering outside Da Maria restaurant on Petitenget Road, not far from his villa.
3:40 am: Mr. Bradley is found on the road outside a health clinic three minutes’ walk from Da Maria restaurant by a local woman passing by on a motorbike. A taxi driver later stops and helps drive him to the hospital. A foreigner – claiming to be an unknown to Mr Bradley – is seen at the hospital and reportedly shows the doctor a video of Mr Bradley acting erratically, stumbling around and banging his head against the floor.
Monday April 17: Mr. Bradley’s family learns of his death.
What happened in the hours after Mr. Bradley was put in a cab and called a friend three times before his mysterious death will be the key to figuring out what happened to him.
Ms Bradley told Daily Mail Australia she suspects her brother may have been a victim of methanol poisoning – after being assured by friends that no drugs had been used.
“Charlie doesn’t drink beer — he sticks to hard liquor,” she said.
‘There is a lot of methanol poisoning in Bali. It seems that many bars pump their alcohol themselves with methanol to save money on its production.
“The body can’t hack as much, which can lead to hallucinations, not being able to walk, shaking, and multiple other symptoms.”
Ms Bradley said she had “racked her brain a million times” in a search for answers and that this was the most plausible.
“Every time I’ve googled people in Bali, it seems to be a very similar situation, and it seems to be more common lately,” she said.
Ms Bradley stressed it was just a theory at this stage as the family faces an agonizing wait to repatriate his body for a post-mortem examination in Australia.
But she said it could explain the chilling call she received on Monday from a doctor treating her brother at Siloam Hospital in Kuta.
“The doctor told me that a man took Charlie to the hospital and he showed him a video of Charlie standing, looking confused and screaming,” she said.
He then fell to the ground and rolled around. He got up, fell again and hit his head on the floor – five times. By the time he got Charlie to the hospital, Charlie was dead.”
Unfortunately, the doctor didn’t get the man’s name and didn’t ask for a copy of the video.
Ms. Bradley has made a desperate request for that person to come forward to spare their family the fear of not knowing what happened in his final moments.
The ‘mystery man’ agrees with the latest update from Bali police, whose spokesman told Daily Mail Australia they questioned two witnesses about the baffling death.
