A representative from the consular department of the Vietnamese embassy in Indonesia said that after being notified about the situation, the Vietnamese embassy deployed the necessary citizen protection measures in order to support the victim’s family in bringing the body back to the homeland as swiftly as possible.

The body of the Vietnamese victim is expected to return to the country on the morning of July 25.

The victim was identified as Nguyen Hoang Hieu Dan from the central highlands province of Lam Dong. Dan was a 26-year-old who had been enjoying a holiday with his family on Kelingking beach on the island of Bali in Indonesia.

According to eyewitnesses at the scene, Dan was sitting on the shoreline away from his family when a six-metre wave hit the beach and swept him out into the ocean. The incident took place at around midday on July 22.

A number of witnesses at the scene made attempts to save him, but failed due to the strength of the currents.

Local police rushed to the scene in order to recover Dan’s body. It took them several hours to transport the body to the local Pramata Nusa Peninda hospital, before moving onto Sanglah hospital in Bali.

Kelingking is widely considered as the best beach in Indonesia and has been voted by TripAdvisor as the second-best beach in all of Asia.

The beach is famous for being home to majestic cliffs such as the ‘giant dinosaur’. Despite its fame, a number of accidents involving tourists happened at the beach.
