Devil’s Tear

A Chinese tourist fell to his death after an attempt to take a selfie on the edge of a cliff in Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, an islet off the coast of Bali, on Sunday, June 10, 2018.

The man, identified as Liang Wanchang, 46, was reportedly enjoying the scenery with friends at Devil’s Tear, located at the top of the cliff with a view of the ocean. When he was taking a selfie with the ocean in the background at about 2:30 p.m. local time, a strong wave hit him.

“The victim lost his balance, slipped and fell into the sea, people in the area strived to help him, but strong waves hampered their efforts” a police officer said to The Jakarta Post.

The victim’s dead body was later recovered from the sea, after rough conditions initially hampered efforts to retrieve it.
