S. Korean man dies in suspected drowning off Bali

A South Korean tourist was found dead on Kuta Beach on Indonesia's resort island of Bali on Friday, two days after he went missing while snorkeling, police said.

A local merchant found the body of the man in his 50s washed ashore around 6:30 a.m. about 500 meters away from the spot he went into the sea.

The man, a South Korean resident in Vietnam, disappeared after he went snorkeling with his wife and acquaintances at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday. His wife and the acquaintances returned to the beach around 5:00 p.m. for rest, but he went back into the sea to snorkel more and went missing.

Police, who are investigating the case, suspect he drowned or suffered a heart attack.

Officials at the South Korean Embassy in Jakarta are helping his bereaved family transfer his body and set up a funeral. (Yonhap)
