The Bali Search and Rescue team rescued four domestic tourists who got stuck at sea in southern Bali.
The Head of Bali Search and Rescue, Gede Darmada, confirmed that 4 domestic tourists identified as Natasia, Ananda, Efrata, and Christian were rescued after being stuck on their boat during the high tide on Gunung Payung Beach on Wednesday evening (27/4).
“They had no idea that the tide was coming, so they were stuck on their boat until the SAR team came to help,” Darmada said on Thursday (28/4).
The visitors arrived at the beach and took a boat to enjoy the sunset. After the sun had set and the tide got higher, some locals around the area grew concerned about their condition and decided to call the SAR team by 6:00 pm.
Officials immediately came to the location and were able to begin the rescue mission by 6:20 pm.
After a few minutes of searching, the officials spotted the tourist boat between rock formations on the beach. “We immediately transported them to a safer area, where they were picked up by their relatives,” Darmada concluded.
Darmada asked the people who worked at the accommodation businesses by the beach to call the SAR team should they see any potential danger around the area.
