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.
