One of the hotel’s staff, Ni Wayan Muliyastini (45) explained that the incident occurred at his workplace on Friday morning. After doing some preparation, Diane started cooking some meals in the kitchen just like a normal day. After finishing cooking, another hotel staff named Ni Made Darmayani who had been looking after Diane during her stay asked Muliyastini to call an ambulance to take Diane to Bali Mandara Hospital as her condition kept getting worse that morning.

But unfortunately, Diane died before the ambulance arrived. So Muliyastini called the police and Diane’s family. “Diane had been suffering from a stroke in the last four years, and recently she was diagnosed with a tumor on her spine.” Iptu Sukadi added. The body was transported to Sanglah Hospital using an ambulance from Denpasar Disaster Management Agency (BPBD) and was scheduled to be cremated in Mumbul, Nusa Dua.

Another one bites the dust.

It seems that some people with underlying health-related conditions present in them choose Bali as a place to live in their last days. A refuge for a peaceful and meaningful departure. RIP

Want a bet this news would travel to her country of origin...Criticism would not go silent as if it is the host country's fault with the lack of a medical response. Sighs.
