A 6-year-old Taiwanese child is dead after a snorkelling accident at Nusa Ceningan off Nusa Penida.
Victim Chai Chia Lai Ho was with around 50 friends in the water on a trip on Monday from the Grand Mirage Hotel at Nusa Dua.
Police said the child had suddenly called for help. A speedboat went to the rescue but by the time it got to the scene the child had become very weak and later fainted. The child was dead on arrival at Klungkung Hospital in Semarapura.
Benoa Water Police and Klungkung Police are investigating the circumstances of the incident at Nusa Ceningan.
