    Bali’s capital city Denpasar has shut down seven public water fountains after a 13-year-old was electrocuted while drinking from one on April 13, 2017.

    Following the death of Rendi Rizaldi, 13, after he was shocked when taking a drink at a fountain in Puputan, the city has switched off all of its public fountains until further notice to ‘alleviate public trauma.’

    Managed by regional water supply company PDAM Denpasar, the drinking fountains are located across public spaces in the city, like around the jogging track in Renon and Lumintang Field. The fountain where Rizaldi was shocked was the oldest of the public drinking taps in Denpasar and was installed back in 2010.

    PDAM Denpasar director Ida Bagus Gde Arsana says the water fountains are regularly serviced and he’s not gotten reports of shocks before Rendi’s death, despite allegations that at least two other people complained about getting shocked by Denpasar fountains.

    “First of all, PDAM has never received any complaints about this,” Arsana said on Friday, as quoted by Tribun Bali.
