Police in Central Java, Indonesia Question Teenager At Helm of Capsized Boat
The number of deaths from the capsizing of a boat on Kedung Ombo reservoir in Boyolali regency, Central Java has increased to seven people after SAR teams from the military, police and National Search and Rescue Agency [Basarnas] found another body Sunday.
Boyolali Police Precinct chief Police Grand Commissioner Attendant Morry Ermond said the deceased was identified as a 12-year old girl named Desti Parmaswati. “The finding [of Desti’s body] means that two people remained missing and unaccounted for,” he said.
“SAR teams have deployed 50 divers to search for the missing in depths of 15 to 30 meters. They are also using water drones to find the missing.”
Morry added that investigators have also questioned Galih or GH, the skipper of the pleasure boat., who was only 13 years old.
“GH confirmed accounts that the boat capsized before it can reach its destination of a floating restaurant, when a passenger made their way to the bow of the ship to take a selfie. The boat tilted to the right and capsized,” he asserted.
