Bali Holiday Interrupted

Five Tourists Badly Injured in North Bali Bus Roll-Over

(7/8/2013) Five people from Jombang, East Java, are in critical condition in North Bali hospitals after the tourist bus in which they were traveling overturned near the Gitgit waterfalls in Buleleng on Saturday, July 6, 2031.

Two of the injured were warded at the Kertha Usada Hospital in Singaraja while 3 other  were placed in the care of the intensive care unit of the Buleleng General Hospital in Singaraja.

Suara Karya reports that the bus, driven by Ahmad Rudi (45), overturned while crossing over the mountain range after visiting Lake Beratan in Bedugul in Bali’s mountain-lake district.

The brakes of the bus are believed to have failed while the bus was traveling the steep and winding roads near Gitgit. As a result, the bus with 37 passengers aboard struck a large tree before rolling over.

In addition to the 5 sent to hospital, many of the remaining passengers suffered minor injuries in the incident requiring treatment at area hospitals.
