• Viral Video: Tower bearing coffin in Balinese funeral procession collapses, but miraculous recovery keeps it from touching the ground

    Not how you want to send your deceased elders on to the next stage.

    A coffin nearly fell to the ground during a funeral procession in Bali, but a quick recovery thankfully saved the deceased from being stuck to their worldly ties, as would have been the consequences under Balinese belief.

    Since the incident happened in Bali’s Tabanan Regency on Jan. 12 at the procession for the late Ida Bagus Mada Dana, 87, footage showing the collapse, along with horrified reactions, and people dashing to get it back up, has gone viral on Bali social media.

    The Balinese cremation ritual, ngaben, is a sacred rite, requiring a lot of effort, time, and money, so it would have been tragic if the bade, or tower, carrying the coffin on towards the cremation ritual had collapsed all the way.

    It all literally went down when the bade was being moved to the setra, or grave area, says Dana’s son-in-law, Anom Orbawan Manuaba.

    Anom says he suspects the main pillar of the bade, which was purchased in Badung,is what collapsed.

    Because of the gravity of the situation, local police did actually investigate if the bade had been purposefully constructed to collapse.

    Marga Municipal Police Chief I Wayan Sudita says police did not find an element of deliberateness.

    “Possibly because the wood was rotting, it broke and fell,” Sudita told Tribun Bali on Wednesday.

    In addition, the grave area required men to lift the bade up off the wheels it was being rolled on because it had to be accessed on a path, which also could’ve contributed to the pillar giving out.

    “The info from the family is that the corpse did not come off the bade,” Sudita said.
