As reported by Balidiscovery.com [Lost at Sea]  a 45-year-old Balinese chef, Nyoman Gede Bagiada, working on board the Celebrity Cruise Lines’ Constellation disappeared overboard early on the morning of January 29, 2014 in the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite a massive search effort by air and sea performed by the U.S. Coast Guard the man remains missing-at-sea and is now presumed dead.

On Sunday, February 23, 2014, a symbolic cremation was conducted by his family at a Mengwi cemetery. Members of Serangan Mengwi Banjar and family members gathered to make offerings, which together with flowers, were wrapped in a burial cloth and committed to a funeral pyre.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Bagiada’s widow Made Karyawati and his first-born Gede Saputra Giri were unable to contain their tears at the religious ceremony necessary to allow the man soul to move on to its next destination.

Underlining the suggestion that Bagiada may have leapt into the ocean, his widow said: “Before he jumped into the ocean, my husband contacted the family to ask if the money he sent had arrived. Perhaps this was the course of his life.”

A report sent from the Indonesian consulate in Houston, Texas reported that the Balinese seaman had committed suicide by leaping into the ocean on January 29, 2014.

A 14-day-long search for the man by the Coast Guard was unsuccessful after which he was declared dead and lost at sea.

Additional information received from various sources say the man ended his life because he was suffering from poor health and his work contract forbid him returning to Bali before his contract period came to an end. The Balinese cook apparently became sufficiently frustrated with his situation to end his life.

Bagiada was captured on a CCTV camera falling into the ocean. His shoes were found later, placed neatly near the ship’s railing.

While the family waited for 25 days for further news, a decision was finally made to put his soul to rest by holding the symbolic cremation ceremony.
