The Search and Rescue (SAR) team on Monday deployed a jet ski as part of its mission to rescue two tourists who went missing at Parangtritis Beach in Bantul, Yogyakarta, on Sunday afternoon.
The two tourists, Ismaulmaulid Bali Muhammad, 13, and Mansur, 23, both residents of Pejawaran, Banjarnegara, Central Java, are feared to have drowned as they were swimming at Parangtritis Beach.
The Yogyakarta-chapter of the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) field coordinator Agustinus Danang said the jet ski was deployed to search for the two tourists along the shoreline.
“We have been checking along the shoreline since last night until today,” he said as quoted by tribunnews.com on Monday.
SAR Bantul coordinator Muhammad Arif Nugraha explained that 30 personnel had been assigned to the search mission together with a number of volunteers. The search has seen personnel trace areas along the shoreline and cast a net.
Ismaul and Mansur were reportedly swept away by waves at around 5 p.m. local time on Sunday. SAR team personnel managed to rescue their three other friends during the incident. (stu/ebf)
