Bali Tourism – Unlucky fate befell a husband and wife from Padukuhan Banaran VII RT 036/007 Kalurahan Banaran Kapanewonan Playen Gunungkidul. Both of them died after being electrocuted by an electric pad used by their husband to do his job.
Saturday (30/1/2021) morning around 08.30 WIb, the residents of Padukuhan Banaran VII were excited to hear cries for help from the children of the couple Nur Kawan (38) and Sri Andiyani (35). The neighbors came to the house and saw the couple lying in the welding shop behind their house.
The neighbor who first came was Arif Tugiran (52) who saw Nur Kawan lying down holding an electric welding device and Sri Andayani’s wife was seen reaching for Nur Kawan’s body. Arif immediately tried to pull Sri Andayani’s body because the woman was seen still moving.
While shouting for help, Arif tried to help Sri Andayani. Hearing the screams of the children of the victims and the screams of Arif, other neighbors also came. They tried to find an outlet to turn off the electricity. However, because they were worried that they were also electrocuted, they then looked for the Kwh meter of the house.
