A Norwegian and a Dutch tourist, aged 21 and 22, were rescued on Friday night from the Mount Agung volcano in Karangasem on the Indonesian island of Bali, according to The Jakarta Post newspaper.
The tourists were found 1.5 kilometers from the volcano crater, after having lost their way on the slope of the volcano on their way back.
“When found, they were in a weak condition and running out of food,” Karangasem Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) head Ida Bagus Ketut Arimbawa told The Jakarta Post.
Mount Agung has repeatedly erupted since 2017. The most recent eruption took place on Thursday evening with a column of ash into the sky.
