Denpasar. El sueco se encontraba en la isla paradisíaca de Bali de vacaciones visitando el volcán activo de Batur cuando tropezó y cayó al fondo del cráter del volcán.
Cayó en caída libre 150 metros, informó la policía local a la agencia de noticias AFP.
– Habían disfrutado de la puesta del sol e iban a bajar de la montaña cuando la víctima tropezó y cayó, dice Ketut Barú, de la organización de ‘trekking’ local a Bali Times.
Según el jefe de policía Dwi Suseno, el joven murió al instante.
– Tenemos la sospecha de que fue muerto por las afiladas rocas a lo largo del cráter de 15 metros de profundidad, dijo a The Jakarta Post.
Los equipos de rescate estuvieron rápido en el lugar para tratar de salvar a Daniel – pero en vano.
Visitó el volcán Batur, junto con dos amigos y el guía local Komang Edi, dijo el jefe de policía Dwi Suseno.
El volcán Batur – un destino popular para turistas aventureros – se encuentra en 1.717 metros sobre el nivel del mar. El último brote se registró en 2000. [nyheter24.se/nyheter/utrikes/344015-25-arig-svensk-dod-pa-bali-foll-ner-i-vulkan]

A Swedish tourist was killed when he fell 150 metres into the crater of Mount Batur, an active volcano on the island of Bali in Indonesia, police said.

The 25-year-old man, identified by the Jakarta Globe newspaper as Daniel Erick Petersen, slipped as he tried to peer into the crater after a dawn trek yesterday to the summit, which climbs to 1700 metres on the north-eastern side of the island, police said.

He was on the trek with two other Swedes and a guide.

“He was looking into the crater, slipped and fell 150 metres,” local police chief Made Oka said.

A group of 16 Norwegian tourists were also climbing the volcano and had met the Swedish tourists before the fall.

“We passed the Swedish boys on the way to the top. A few minutes later, our guide told about the accident,” one of them told Norwegian newspaper VG.

“It is terrible that something like this can happen. It could have been one of us,” she was quoted as saying.

The steep slopes of the crater meant Mr Petersen could not rescued by his companions, Mr Oka told the Globe.

Emergency crew took eight hours to recover the body using ropes and at least 60 people were involved in the rescue, The Jakarta Post newspaper reported.

“The area around the rim was quite slippery in the morning. In such circumstances, the victim’s colleagues and the guide could not possibly rescue him by going down into the crater,” Mr Oka said.

“In addition to severe injuries on his head, most parts of his body were bruised.”

A Swedish foreign ministry spokesman said Mr Petersen’s family was informed of his death, Swedish media reports said.

Mount Batur is easy to climb compared to some other volcanoes in Indonesia and has become popular with day-trippers on Bali.

It last erupted in 2000 and is considered an active volcano. It regularly lets off steam. [www.smh.com.au/travel/travel-news/young-tourist-slips-into-volcano-crater-20100401-rf8v.html]
