Ollie Dousset (pictured), 26, had to have his leg amputated after a terrible accident in Bali

A young man is lucky to be alive after a terrible accident in Bali that forced him to amputate his leg.

Ollie Dousset, from the beaches of North Sydney, visited the island of Indonesia on a surf trip when his vehicle collided with a cement truck.

"We saw a cement truck overtake our car on our side of the road and my driver had nowhere to go and we essentially got under the rear axle of the truck," said Mr. Dousset.

The 26-year-old man knew he had to act quickly, using a shoelace as a turnstile to rebuild his shattered leg, Seven news informed.

"I just saw my leg on the floor with the calf muscle a little bit next to my leg and I just picked up my whole leg in my hands and put everything back together," he said.

Mr. Dousset took a taxi to the hospital and counted from and to number 20 to distract himself.

He continued to say to himself: & # 39; I have this & # 39; and we can do it & # 39;

Despite having moved to the hospital and having immobilized his leg, Dousset's condition deteriorated rapidly due to an infection.

The doctors who helped him were also forced to run out of his neighborhood when an earthquake struck.

"My bed rest just went from side to side and I thought: I can not believe it, that is, I'm going to die here," he said.

Despite having moved to the hospital and having immobilized his leg, Dousset's condition deteriorated rapidly due to an infection.

Dousset's parents paid an emergency flight to Perth so that the young man could be treated by Australian doctors.

The medical staff at Royal Perth Hospital was forced to tell Mr. Dousset that his leg would need to be amputated due to a life-threatening infection.

Now he has had five surgeries and the next ten days are crucial for recovery, since he could lose more legs if the infection returns.

Mr. Dousset said he is ready to come out stronger than ever.

A GoFundMe page was created for the young man and so far more than $ 55,000 has been raised.
