One social media post showed the moment the wave struck an Indonesian pop band. The group has reported the death of their bass player and road manager, and other members of the group are still missing.
Four others, guitarist Herman Sikumbang, drummer Andi Windu Darmawan, crew member Ujang, and Dylan Sahara, wife of vocalist Riefian Fajarsyah, haven’t been found yet.
“Seventeen was performing at an event held by state electric company PLN near the shore of Tanjung Lesung beach when the tidal wave hit their stage around 9:30 p.m.”
Social media footage of the disaster shows the stage lurching forward into the audience along with the band and its equipment.
