A Hong Kong tourist, Yeung Saufung (24), lost her life on Bali's Telaga Waja River in the Karangasem Regency of Bali on Monday, February 18, 2008.

According to local press reports, the Hong Kong woman was accompanied by 3 friends and a guide from PT Telaga Waja Rafting on a late afternoon rafting trip down the river when a large water surge caused the raft to capsize. While the guide, two women, and a man in the group managed to scramble to safety, the ill-fated young woman was lost until her lifeless body was discovered entangled among river-side boulders on Wednesday, more than 24 hours after her disappearance.

Yeung Saufung; two women Cheung Kai Chi (23) and Lau Shui Fong (24); and a single male Kwan Ching Aan (24) - all from Hong Kong - were tossed into the river when their guide unsuccessfully attempted to land on the river's banks`as waters suddenly rose. The sudden flow of water, however, thwarted his attempts causing the raft to overturn. The three tourists and the guide who survived managed to hold on to ropes attached to the raft, while the woman who perished was swept downstream.

The guide told police that all the trip's participants were equipped with safety helmet and flotation vests.

The body of the young woman was discovered by members of Bali's Search & Rescue (SAR) team and local villagers. The woman's helmet and flotation vest were discovered in a location not far from her body.
