Two Russians on vacation were hospitalized after falling into a 10-meter-deep ravine in Pecatu, North Kuta, Bali, on Wednesday afternoon.
Sergey Neginskiy, 30, and Alena Veronina, 28, were riding a motorbike together on Jl. Blimbing Sari Pecatu when they lost control of the vehicle before falling into the ravine.
The Denpasar National Search and Rescue Agency deployed a team to rescue them from the ravine. Both were suffering from asphyxia when the team found them and so they were given emergency respiratory care.
“The rescue process took more than one hour. We deployed 12 personnel and some equipment,” said Ida Bagus Surya Wirawan, a senior officer from the agency who took part in the rescue mission.
The rescue also involved police, a medical team from a community health center (Puskesmas) and residents.
Wirawan said that both victims were safe and had been taken to BIMC hospital.
