Three of seven teenagers drowned while sailing in a local fishing boat near Tulamben, northeast Bali on Thursday, July 24, 2014.

The boys were all from the nearby village of Tulamben and had decided to make an outing to the sea in the sail-driven vessel. reports the seven set sail at 4:30 pm paddling the boat out into open water. However, a short distance from shore the boat flipped when hit by a large wave, sending the seven young men into the water.

Four of the boys - I Nengah Sudarma,(18), Paing (14),  Kadek Adi(15) and I Gede Botak,(14) managed to safely swim the 50 meters to shore. Unfortunately, three boys -I Gede Wawan Antara (17) of banjar Beluhu Kangin, I Wayan Junaka Adi from Panti and I Kadek Golo,(17) from banjar Tengah Panti were unable to swim and disappeared beneath he waves.
