A 29-year-old woman was found dead at the bottom of a cliff in Sunset Point, Uluwatu, with authorities suspecting that she may have committed suicide.
The victim, identified by her initials MG, was found yesterday. According to reports, evacuation proved challenging due to the location’s terrain, and authorities eventually took her body with a rubber boat to Dreamland Beach before she was taken to Sanglah General Hospital.
At the top of the cliff, authorities found the victim’s personal items, including a motorbike, jacket, cellphone, and an ID card.
South Kuta Police Chief Yusak Agustinus Sooai said that the victim had gone missing since Sunday, and are now looking into the possible cause of death.
“There is suspicion that it might have been suicide,” Yusak said.
Indonesia currently does not have a fully functioning government-run suicide prevention hotline, but if you or anyone you know is suffering from depression and/or contemplating suicide, you can get more information and resources from several local NGOs dealing with mental health and suicide prevention, such as intothelightid.org and Bali-based Love Inside Suicide Awareness (LISA) helpline at +628113855472.
