A total of four people died, one male, three female
All bodies have been evacuated to Bhayangkara Hospital, to be autopsied and hand over to the family.
(Journalist): Okay, as a result of today's search, does this mean the evacuation has been completed?
What we agreed on earlier, at sixteen, we stopped, because the time limit for the search was approaching evening.
And also search effectiveness, the result won't be good to search in the dark
Initially, the information we received was that five people were trapped. But after reconfirming it to the public who reported the information, they were not sure.
But do not rule out, the search will be carried out again. for example if there is a bad smell or someone reports it.
We will perform another operation in this area (the area around the search location)
For now, we consider this location clear.
The joint task force from the national search and rescue team, local disaster mitigation agency, Indonesian military and police successfully evacuated 4 victims stuck under the ruins of a small restaurant.
The evacuation started on Friday 15th of January and continued until today.
The 2 victims evacuated on Friday were the owners of the stall and the other 2 victims evacuated on Saturday were the employees of the restaurant.
