Australian man dies in Bali after falling through glass

A young Australian man has died in a Bali hospital after reportedly falling through glass paneling in his hotel room.

The 24-year-old, believed to be from Perth, was discovered with multiple wounds to his right shoulder and arm around 7pm on Wednesday and rushed to Siloam Hospital, where he died.

Police believe he may have been drinking earlier in the evening and was walking around when he hit some glass and broke it.


“He fell on it and was wounded by the broken glass,” Kuta police station chief Ida Bagus Dedy Januarta said on Thursday.

“Blood was oozing from those wounds caused by broken glass … the victim’s life finally could not be saved.”

The man’s body was sent to Sanglah Hospital to be forensically examined at 3am on Thursday.

The man’s cause of death is still to be determined.

However, his family is being contacted for permission to conduct an autopsy.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has confirmed it is providing consular assistance to the family.
