Officials at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital confirmed on Monday evening, November 18, 2013, that 6 of 15 passengers on a tourist bus that fell into a ravine near Pecatu in South Bali had died as a result of the accident.

The tour bus carrying a group of Chinese tourists from Henan Province in China fell some 15-2020 meters into a ravine near the Padang Padang Bridge at Uluwatu. The accident occurred late on Monday afternoon.

The Bus was operated by Happy Tours.

The bus reportedly stalled while climbing a hill, rolled backward and tumbled into the ravine.

The casualties were rushed by ambulance to Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital and the BIMC Hospital in Kuta. The head of forensic medicine at Sanglah, Dr. Dudut Rustiadi, told the State News Agency Antara that after checking both medical facilities he could confirm six had died because of the crash.

Dead are the bus driver Agus Bachtiar Usman (36), the tour guide Priscilia Esther Budi Hardjojo (40) and four Chinese tourists: Ding Guo Zeng (male,52), Qin Ping Tao (lmale, 56), Jin Li Tao (male, 55), and Bao Serang Liu (male, 55).

There were unconfirmed reports of a possible seventh victim, another Chinese tourist, who had died at the BIMC Hospital and was in the process of being removed to Sanglah Hospital's mortuary. Police later said the report of a seventh victim was incorrect.
