Indonesian Fishing Competition Participant Gets A Shocking Catch: A Dead Man’s Body

All the while, he thought he caught a big fish!

A supposedly exciting and fun-filled fishing competition in Indonesia turned into a horrific event when one of the participants made one shocking catch. While he thought that he caught a big fish, the angler had the shock of his life upon discovering that a corpse was at the other end of his fishing rod.

The fishereman, identified only as Safari, was one of the hundreds of participants at the recent fishing competition on the Citarum River in Bandung, Indonesia. Realizing that his fishing rod has hooked on something, he thought that he caught a big fish because of the weight of his supposed catch at the other end of the rod. After wrestling with the “big fish” for almost two minutes, Safari had the shock of his life as a human hand emerged out of the surface.

Soon after, police officers arrived at the venue of the event and brought the dead body to the river bank. The victim, who is believed to be between 20 and 30 years old, had curly hair, and was wearing blue jogging bottoms and a white t-shirt. His identity still remains a mystery to authorities so they appealed to residents for more information.

“The corpse was first discovered by one of the participants in the fishing contest while waiting for his fishing bait to be eaten,” said Bandung Police Chief Senior Commissioner Indra Hermawan.

Authorities believe it is very likely that the victim had only recently fallen into the river.

Meanwhile, there are also those who suspected that he could have been a victim of foul play – a theory that has been debunked by authorities.

As Hermawan said:

“The victim has been taken to Sartika Asih Hospital for an autopsy. From the preliminary investigation, what is certain is that there is no trace of violence in the victim’s body.”
