The Bali Times
THE BODY of a young Swedish man who fell into Mt Batur in Bali’s northeast has been found and retrieved.
It was located late on Wednesday and taken to Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar for autopsy, AA Rai Laba of Bangli Police said.
“It appears that he suffered head injuries and also severe injuries to other areas of his body,” Laba said.
The victim, named by police as 25-year-old Daniel Petersen, had made an early Wednesday morning climb of the active volcano with friends when he slipped and fell into one of two craters.
Mt Batur consists of two calderas and is 1,717 metres above sea level; it last erupted in 2000. Climbing to the summit is a popular activity for tourists and locals.Filed under: Headlines
