Chopra Vishal from United Kingdom reportedly drowned on Wednesday after getting swept away by strong waves at one of the famous beach break Pererenan, Bali Coconuts reported.
The 43-year-old UK national had apparently been out using a bodyboard at around 5 pm, when he was hit by big waves and dragged out to sea.
People at the scene tried to resuscitate Vishal and brought his body back to shore, but he passed away while on the way to Badung Hospital, allegedly due to lack of oxygen in his body.
Mengwi Police Chief I Nengah Patrem confirmed the incident and says police are coordinating with the victim’s family and the British embassy.
