Kuta Waters Claim Another Life


A Dutchman died while swimming at Kuta Beach on Thursday, police said.

Jan van Geseel, 63, was swept away by a large wave as he was swimming at Bali’s most popular beach in the mid-afternoon, Kuta Water Police chief AA Putu Wismara Putra said.

“The victim tried to get help by waving his arms about and a life guard swam to him and brought him to shore, but he was very weak,” he said.

Geseel died after being admitted to a local hospital. He is the latest fatality of frequent rip tides at Kuta Beach.
