(4/6/2014)

Tragedy struck early on the morning of Monday, March 31, 2014, just hours before the 24-hours of mandatory silence of Nyepi Day descended on Bali.

A junior high school student from Negara, Krisna Dwi Saputra (17), together with a group of compatriots had participated in watching traditional ogoh-ogoh parades and, according to NusaBali, drinking alcoholic refreshment on the evening of the dawn of the Balinese New Year.

According to reports, Krisna and some friends decided to take a nap on the main body of the Denpasar-Gilimanuk highway near Yeh Sumbul village.

At 1:30 am the group of young men had fallen asleep on the road when a truck traveling from the east carrying a Barong for use in ceremonies at the nearby Pura Rambit Siwi ran over the sleeping group. According to police, the truck’s headlights were not working and the driver did not see the bodies of the young men sleeping on the road until he struck them.

As a result of the collision, Krisna Dwi Saputra died at the scene due to massive head injuries. Marsiadi, another boy said to be intoxicated and sleeping on the road, suffered a broken right leg and left elbow resulting in his hospitalization.

The driver of the truck is being held by police for further examination.

Sanglah General Hospital

Meanwhile, Nusa Bali reports that 105 patients were treated in the emergency room of Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital during a 24-hour period beginning from midnight on Nyepi Eve.

Of those receiving treatment 16 were hospitalized for medical complaints, 7 were hospitalized for injuries/accidents and 7 were hospitalized for surgical treatment. The remainders were treated on an outpatient basis.

During the same period,15 babies were born at Sanglah Hospital comprised of 9 boys and 6 girls.

29 patients received outpatient fastrack treatment at the Hospital’s polyclinic and 14 were treated at the Cardiac Center.

During the Nyepi period 4 bodies were received by Sanglah mortuary, 3 delivered from other hospitals in Bali.
