The State News Agency Antara reports that a 26-year-old citizen of the Dominican Republic, Mario Alpanso Rodriguez, died while climbing the Mount Rajani volcano in Lombok on Sunday, August 10, 2014 at around midnight.

The head of the Gunung Rinjani National Park (TNGR), Agus Budiono, confirmed the fatality involving the foreign climber,

“From the information now available, the victim was reportedly sick as he began his climb and he later asked for an urgent evacuation. Eventually a local motorcyclist climbed to his location to bring him down off the mountain,” said Budiono.

On the ride down the mountain an accident occurred causing the Dominican to fall into a ravine and die.

Budiono said an investigation was underway by police to absolutely confirm that the accident caused the death of Rodriguez.

Records confirm that Mario Alpanso Rodriguez commenced climbing Mount Rinjani on his own on Frdiay, August 8, 2014 on a route via Sembalun in East Lombok.

The man’s body was evacuated from the ravine by tens of porters assisted by health and TNGR officials and brought to the General Hospital in Selong, Lombok.

Budiono confirmed that Park rules prohibit motorcycles from traveling within the park on hiker’s paths and was concerned that the local villager was bold enough to brings a bike to transport the Dominican visitor.

The park authorities are awaiting the results of a police investigation surrounding the man’s death.
