Deadly crash for Chinese tourist bus in Indonesia's Bali

By BBC | November 19th 2013

INDONESIA: At least six people, including four Chinese tourists, have died after a bus they were on plunged into a ravine in Indonesia's Bali island.

The Indonesian driver and tour guide of the bus, which was on its way to the popular cliff-top Uluwatu temple, were also killed in Monday's crash.

At least three other Chinese nationals were still in hospital with serious injuries, Chinese state media report.

An Indonesian official said the bus may have experienced engine failure.

Djoko Heru Utomo, police chief of Bali's capital Denpasar, said the bus fell around 15m (50ft) into the ravine.

"When the bus was approaching the destination there seemed to be a sudden engine failure," he told Agence-France Presse news agency.

The tourist bus was carrying 13 tourists from China's Henan province, Xinhua news agency said.

The four tourists were in their 50s, Xinhua quoted a local Indonesian official as saying.

Three of the Chinese tourists died on Monday, while another died in hospital on Tuesday, said China's consulate-general in Surabaya, East Java province.

Six other tourists on the bus were being treated in hospital for non-serious injuries, it added.
