A 27-year-old tourist narrowly escaped death after somehow managing to survive a 131ft fall while posing for photos.
Holidaymaker Alvalino Kesanda was taking in the views from 'Broken Beach' on the southwestern coast of Nusa Penida Island, after he fell from 'doing some flips'.
Kesanda was joined by a tour guide who drove him around the island before deciding to take a trip to the cliff-top.
Reports suggest that Kesanda asked the guide to take around 10 or so photos of him next to the view.
However, after reportedly trying to do a somersault, he slipped and fell from the edge of the cliff.
Unable to land on two feet, Kesanda was severely injured, but somehow managed to survive.
The Head of the Bali Basarnas Office, Gede Darmada, via translated text, said: "We received the information around 10.00 WITA. Eyewitnesses are tour guides.
"The victim is said to have taken a photo doing some flips."
Attempts to rescue the man via boat were stunted due to waves in the sea blocking the entry point, Tribun Bali reports.
Eventually as the tide eased, rescue teams arrived to the scene at 1pm.
"We gave initial treatment to reduce bleeding from leg and hand injuries," Darmada added.
Nusa Penida Police Chief Commissioner I Gede Redastra revealed: “It could be seen that the victim could still move but could not stand up.”
A stretcher was then used to pull the victim to safety.
Kesanda suffered serious leg injuries and is believed to be in hospital for treatment.
Kompol Resastra told reporters: “At 4:21 pm, all series of evacuation activities for tourists who fell on Broken Beach were completed.”
The incident comes as one man sadly fell to his death, earlier this year, moments after taking a selfie with his girlfriend.
When Andrea Mazzetto was out for a hike with his partner, Sara Bragante, in Rotzo, Italy, the 30-year-old dropped his phone and went down to retrieve it.
Andrea lost his balance and fell from the cliff edge, plummeting 200 metres to the bottom, police confirmed.
Following his death, Sara reshared their last photo together on her Instagram account, writing: "Our cursed last photo together. You will always be with me, my little bear."
