For Those in Peril on the Sea

Bali Hotel Manager Drowns During Boating Accident Off Baliís West Coast

(1/25/2013) The 37-year-old manager of the Puri Dajuma Hotel in Negara, West Bali, drowned near Pekutatan harbor on Monday, January 21, 2013.

Gede Indrayasa’s body was recovered from the ocean at 6:30 am the following morning after disappearing at 5:00 pm on Monday afternoon. The man’s body, discovered just 300 meters west of the where he was last seen, was found by an uncle, Ketut Budiadnya, who had joined the search effort.

According to The Bali Post, the resort’s manager drowned while sailing a small sailboat with the resort’s owner, Louis Balme, which capsized in heavy seas. Balme, who was wearing a life vest managed to make it to shore while his employee, unaided by a flotation device, sunk below the waves.

Indrayasa’s body was brought to a local health center for forensic examination before being sent to his family’s home in Tingar Sari, Busungbiu, Singaraja.
