Family's grim task to bring home ashes of Perth man, 31, found dead in Bali pool

A Perth family is facing a grim challenge to get their son and brother home after he was found dead in his Bali swimming pool.

Entrepreneur Rhodri Lloyd Thomas, 31, was found dead in the swimming pool of his villa in Canggu earlier this month, police on the holiday island say.

9News has been told he had been running that morning, and police believe he may have passed out from exhaustion underwater.

Witnesses tried to revive him, and performed CPR for 20 minutes until an ambulance arrived and took his body to Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar.

His family now have the painstaking task of bringing his ashes home after he was cremated on Tuesday.

But coronavirus travel bans, strict export regulations and new quarantine rules are making the sad task more difficult.
