A Balinese man named Putu Dana, alias Gobel, died on Wednesday reportedly due to an overdose. The man, who came from Banyupoh village, was unconscious when he was brought by a woman to check in at Puri Surya Hotel in Seririt at 1 a.m. Seeing the man’s condition, the hotel management did not allow them to stay there and rushed the man to Shanti Graha Hospital in Seririt. However, he had already stopped breathing when he was examined by the doctor at the hospital, said Sri Wahyuni, the hospital’s spokesperson.
“His face and thorax was bluish. The doctor’s diagnosis is that he might have died before reaching the hospital,” she said. His family refused an autopsy and brought the body to their village. Seririt police precinct commander Comr. Joni Antara Putra confirmed the incident, saying the police were still investigating the cause of death. “We have questioned the hotel’s personnel and family members. We’re still investigating whether he died of an overdose or other causes.” Based on medical examination, there was no indication of violence, he said.
