Bali Kite Festival to be Reevaluated?

Bali Legislator Calls for Better Coordination, Planning and Spectator Protection Following Death of 8-Year-Old Spectator at 2012 Bali Kite Festival

(7/20/2012)

The vice-chairman of Commission IV of the Bali Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), Ketut Kariyasa Adnyana, has asked that the execution of Bali’s Annual Kite Festival at Padang Galak Beach be reevaluated.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Adnyana’s call comes after the tragic death of an 8-year-old boy attending the event as a spectator on Sunday, July 15, 2012.

Kariyasa, a legislator from the PDIP faction, said the kite flying competition has been held for decades, but the organizers never anticipate potential scenarios that may unfold. He said he hoped in the future the organizers would undertake closer cooperation with the relevant departments of the Indonesian government and put insurance coverage in place.

“If incidents happen, such as that which occurred yesterday (Sunday), who will take responsibility? If there’s insurance (at least) a claim can be filed to help the victim,” he explained.

Kariyasa is demanding that future Bali Kite Festivals demonstrate better coordination between the organizer, participant and the relevant government departments.

“The teams, when they depart and finish the competition, can be escorted by the relevant government agencies. The arena used for the competition has to be protected from being overrun by spectators. A place is needed for spectators stands, set aside to protect them from unintended consequence,” the legislator explained.

The 2012 Bali Kite Festival involved participation by hundreds of village groups flying a wide variety of kites.

Police continue to investigate the death of the 8-year-old boy who died after his head was truck by a large kite crashing to the ground. Police in East Denpasar continue to suggest that criminal negligence charges may be filed in the boy’s death.
