A rescue team lifted him from the concrete pit after a farmer in Pecatu village raised the alarm.

Local search and rescue chief Gede Darmada said: “Jacob’s calls for help were heard by a local who was going to feed his cows.”

Roberts broke his leg when he stumbled into the near-empty reservoir. He told authorities he had been trying to evade a dog that chased him through the village.

He was trapped for six days without food or water.

South Kuta police chief Yusak Agustinus Sooai said: “He looked thin and injured.

“The victim claimed to have been trapped there about six days before an evacuation was carried out by the Basarnas team on Saturday.”
