An explosion of a boat with the tourists occurred on the island of Bali. A boat headed to Gili Trawangan island. There were 35 passengers and 4 crew. According to preliminary information, 1 tourist was killed, and 14 people were injured.
According to the police, an explosion occurred when a boat was 200 meters away from the shoe. The reasons for an explosion are still unknown. Police have ruled out version with a bomb. The eyewitnesses claim that a fuel tank was exploded. The reason for this could serve as a short circuit on the boat.
It is worth to say, that the level of safety in Indonesian ferry services is too low. That’s why fatal accidents are common there.
Last year dozens of people were injured by explosions during the ferry crossing between the islands of Bali and Lombok.
