Dwi (20), a friend of the victims, was interviewed by DenPost at the Sanglah General Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, and said the accident happened at 1:30 pm when some 15 kitchen workers were helping to build a new office on the second floor of the Italian restaurant.

At the time of the accident  the four victims, two of whom had only been employed for three months, were carrying roof sheeting up a set of stairs from level one to level two. It is suspected that the metal sheeting touched an electrical substation located just on the outside of the restaurant. The four were shocked and thrown by the force of the jolt back to the ground floor. At the time of the “shock” a loud explosive noise and a flash of light occurred heard as far as 100 meters from the restaurant

The two men who suffered severe burns were rushed to Sanglah General Hospital at 2:30 pm. Most of the burns were confined to the men's arms, leg and chests areas.

A third victim, Iswayudi (21) was taken to the BIMC Hospital before eventually being transferred to Sanglah Hospital. Another victim, Tipi Jabrik, the owner of the restaurant, is still being treated at BIMC Hospital.

Police from the North Kuta police precinct report the case is still under investigation.

The restaurant is owned by well know surfing figure Tipi Jabrik, who is the brother of Indonesian film star Luna Maya.

Tipi Jabrik was among the four people injured and is the sole patient in the incident being treated at BIMC Hospital for burns.
