Family getting closer to goal of bringing son's body home

LIAM Arndt would have turned 19 on August 16.

Instead his family is desperately trying to raise money to bring his body home after he was killed in a car accident near Grong Grong in New South Wales on July 25.

His pregnant girlfriend, Kailah O'Keefe, survived the crash, along with their unborn baby.

His father Brad, who lives in Pialba, made the heartbreaking trip to Wagga Wagga this week to erect a cross at the scene of the accident and to visit Kailah, who was recovering from multiple injuries at Wagga Wagga Base Hospital.

Liam's stepbrother Dakota Smith has taken to social media in a bid to help Brad, who is on a disability pension, raise the money to bring Liam home and arrange for his cremation.

So far more than $2000 had been raised, Dakota said.

The family said $7000 should be enough to cover expenses and any additional money will be given to help Kailah and her baby rebuild their lives.
