West Manggarai Police Chief, AKBP Handoyo Santoso said the sea accident occurred around 12.00 West Indonesian Time.
According to Handoyo, Plataran Phinisi Bali GT 32 ship owned by Pltaran Resort Labuan Bajo sank while sailing from Bidadari Island waters to Plataran Resort Labuan Bajo, with a coordinate point of occurrence of -8 ° 28'36 "S 119 ° 51'13" E.
Handoyo said, based on the statement of the Captain of the Bali Phinisi Plataran Ship named Andy Ahmad (28), the ship was carrying nine guests from the presidential press.
"Around 11:00 a.m., the ship departed from the Dermaga Kayu Plataran of the Labuan Bajo Resort heading to Bidadari, which is about 0.5 miles away to take pictures," Handoyo told Kompas.com, Tuesday afternoon.
Then at 11:30 Wita, when the ship arrived at Bidadari Waters, the position of the ship immediately turned towards the direction of Labuan Bajo and the ship continued to sail.
Furthermore, at 12.00 West Indonesian Time, continued Handoyo, suddenly strong winds hit the ship.
At that time, the sail of the ship that had been used before sailing had not yet been lowered so that the ship immediately flipped and fell to the left.
The captain of the ship and other crew members immediately took out life jackets and life raf for passengers to use.
At 12:15 Wita, three speedboat units owned by Plataran headed to Bidadari Waters to evacuate all surviving ship passengers and were immediately taken to the Plataran Resort Labuan Bajo.
"At present, the passengers are at the Plataran Resort Labuan Bajo," he said. (*)
