The Jakarta Post
Two South Korean tourists identified as Seo Hyeong-do, 18, and Park Ji-su, 22, have drowned in Gili Trawangan waters in North Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara.
Residents told local authorities on Wednesday afternoon that the two had been missing at a beach in front of Karma Kayak Hotel on Gili Trawangan.
Seo was found dead on Wednesday night, when his body was retrieved from the water. Park, a female, remains missing.
“The body has been transferred to Mataram for further identification at the police office. Meanwhile, we’re still searching for Park,” Mataram Search and Rescue Agency spokesperson I Gusti Lanang Wiswananda said on Thursday in Mataram.
He said high tide was the main challenge for the search team.
According to Wiswananda, the two were staying at the Kuno Villa. They were reportedly snorkeling when they were sucked under the surface by strong currents. (swd)
