‘I’ve still got jelly legs’: Australian in Indonesia tells of frightening experience

At least 91 people have been killed in a powerful earthquake which struck in Indonesia.

Hundreds more were injured and thousands fled their homes when the magnitude seven-quake hit the holiday island of Lombok.

Tremors were also felt in Bali and damaged a terminal at Denpasar airport.

The search and rescue effort is continuing and the death toll is expected to rise.

Living Asia Resort and Spa manager Evan Burns is there and tells Ross Greenwood “you can’t think twice”.

“You have to go with your instinct.

“You have to follow what government warnings we got at the time, or at the beginning, lack thereof.

“I’ve still got jelly legs.”

He says bulldozers and cranes are working to clear the debris.
