Bali Police Evacuate Erratic Acting Australian National from the Australian Consulate in Bali
An Australian man, Liam Smyth (60) was admitted for observation at Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, following an emotional outburst during a visit to the Australian Consulate in Denpasar. According to NusaBali, Smyth arrived at the Consulate at 8:00 a.m. and reportedly became highly agitated when guards refused him entry to the heavily guarded building.
After reporting the man’s behavior to their supervisors, Smyth was eventually allowed entrance to the Consulate only to be evacuated by ambulance a short time later. Apparently, Smyth’s escalating erratic behavior once he stepped into the consulate caused officials to seek assistance from police who rushed to the scene to subdue the Australian and bring him to the nearby hospital.
When the NusaBali visited Smyth at the hospital they reported the man was talking to himself. Medical personnel reportedly sedated the man.
