Four travel executives died in an river tubing accident in Magelang, Central Java yesterday when they were hit by sudden floodwaters.

They were Tantri Aristiawati of Nitour, Yully Wu of Yope Cavations and Sicilia Mantjoeng of Advent Tour, all from Jakarta, and Datin Hanisa of Travel Dynamic Selangor Malaysia.

They were buyers attending Jogjakarta Istimewa Travel Exchange (JITEX) which took place from March 10-12. Together with 11 other JITEX participants, they extended their stay to take part in the Little Ubud River Tubing adventure along Singgono River in Magelang.

Djohari Somad, chairman of the Association of the Indonesian Tourism Players, said in a statement: “Around 14.00 (when they were resting in the middle of the adventure) a sudden river flooding took place and swept participants away. Four, including three of our association members, were casualties while the rest were safe.”
