Landslide in Kintamani Kills 2 Balinese

Heavy Rains and Resulting Landslide Kills Two Balinese Men at Kintamani.

(10/25/2010) Two construction workers were killed near the Puri Dewata Restaurant in Kintamani, Bangli, Bali due to land slides that occurred on Saturday afternoon, October 24, 2010.

Antara reports that the two dead men - I Kadek Astrawan (17) and I Nengah Surjana (35), both hailed from Kintamani. A third worker on the same project that was laying the foundations for a home, I Wayan Rantiana (30), suffered injuries but escaped being buried by the land shift.

The incident occurred while the men were sheltering from heavy rains in a makeshift tent at the construction site at around 2 pm. Caught in a landslide, the men were able to scream for help which bought nearby residents to the scene to dig them out. Despite efforts by local residents and police, only Rantiana escaped death to be recovered alive by rescuers.
