Foreigners die after boat capsizes in Bali


Two foreigners, a Brazilian and South African, have lost their lives after their boat capsized in rough seas near Bali.

This is according to the state search-and-rescue agency.

The victims, a 48-year-old Brazilian and a 43-year-old South African, were declared dead in the hospital.

The agency added that the captain of the boat survived with serious injuries.

The small tourist boat flipped near the treacherous Devil’s Tear cove on Nusa Lembongan, east of the Indonesian holiday island.

Maritime accidents are common in Indonesia, a Southeast Asian archipelago of some 17,000 islands where safety standards are often lax.
