Tourist falls to his death in active volcano on Bali
Fetersen, along with two of his friends, set out before dawn this morning to make a guided trek to the summit of the 5633 foot tall mountain. The hike is a popular one with tourists to Bali, who enjoy watching the sun rise over the volcanic crater, and while it can be physically challenging, it is non-technical in nature, and more accessible than some of the other volcanoes on the island.
Search and rescue teams are hoping to retrieve the body from the crater by using ropes, but the operation is still on going at this time.
