Tourist Dies After Falling Into Volcano
A SWEDISH tourist was killed yesterday when he fell 150 meters into the crater of Mount Batur, an active volcano on the Indonesian tourist island of Bali.
The 25-year-old man slipped as he tried to peer into the crater after a dawn trek to the summit, which climbs to 1700m on the north-eastern side of the island, police said.
“He was looking into the crater, slipped and fell 150m,” local police chief Made Oka said.
He said emergency responders were at the scene and were trying recover the tourist’s body using ropes.
