Melbourne real estate agent Nick Dinakis remains in hospital after he was among 35 passengers who rode the ill-fated bus from a wedding in the New South Wales Hunter Valley region on June 12.
According to The Herald Sun, Dinakis has been moved from the Intensive Care Unit at the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle to a less serious unit and is making “positive steps towards recovery.”
Dinakis attended the wedding of Madeleine Edsell and Mitchell Gaffney on Sunday with his partner Darcy Bulman. The pair was snapped smiling in a photo together at the Wandin Estate venue just hours before tragedy unfolded and they were involved in the deadly bus crash.
Ms Bulman was identified as the tenth wedding guest who lost her life in the Hunter Valley smash.
Tributes have since flowed for Ms Bulman on social media with friends calling her a “wonderful” person.
Victorian Minister for Tourism, Steve Dimopoulos, said the crash was an “extraordinary tragedy” after such a joyful event.
“It’s all too close to many of us in terms of a wedding celebration being a place of joy and (that has) turned into such a tragedy,” Dimopoulos said.
