Two tourists drown, 2 missing at Palabuhanratu beach

Sukabumi (ANTARA News) - Two local tourists have died and two others are missing, and are expected to have drowned at sea while visiting the Palabuhanratu beach of Sukabumi in West Java during the Idul Fitr holiday, a rescuer said on Wednesday.

"All four are expected to have died, two were found drowned and two others are still missing," chief rescuer Okih Fajrie Assidiqie said.

The tourists reportedly went missing after they swam too far from coastal lines and entered the danger zone.

Assidiqie said that his team of rescuers has been divided into two groups to search for the two people who are still missing.

Maman, a rescue team member said that supervision of other visiting tourists has also been stepped up, and the team has been directed to take firm action against any tourists, who try to endanger themselves or others.
