Jimmy Barnes and his family have had a close call after just missing being caught up in the Bangkok blast.
Jimmy, his wife Jane, daughter Elly-May, her husband Liam Conboy and their young son Dylan, along with an Australian journalist, were booked for a five-star meal at Bangkok’s Intercontinental Hotel.
Luckily for them, they had made a last minute decision to take a different route to dinner.
Instead of crossing the busy intersection, they chose to walk on an overhead bridge that linked their accommodation to the restaurant.
It is a decision that could have saved their lives, with the explosion ripping through the intersection as they walked across the footbridge.
The devastating blast has killed at least 19 people, but it is unconfirmed whether any Australians are among the dead or seriously injured.
