Fremantle man Keith Coughlan found dead in Bali after crashing scooter into drainage ditch

A Perth man has died in Bali after being found trapped in a drainage ditch under his crashed scooter.

Keith Coughlan’s body was found by a local who spotted the vehicle and the victim’s leg on a North Kuta road in the early hours of Sunday morning, Nine News reported.

Police believe the 26-year-old Fremantle man had been drink-driving after finding seven beer bottles at the scene.

The shocking discovery comes just days after another Australian man plunged to his death at a Seminyak hotel.

The tourist fell from his fourth-storey balcony, with one witness saying she heard screaming and banging on windows about 15 minutes before the man fell.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed its consular officials were providing assistance to the family of the Australian who died but would not comment further on the tragedy.
