Australian DJ Found Dead in Bali After Trying To Help Injured Friend

Australian DJ Adam Neat has died while trying to help a stricken friend after reportedly crashing through a glass door.

The 42-year-old artist, known professionally as Adam Sky, died while trying to help a friend who had suffered several broken bones on the Indonesian island on Saturday, his management has confirmed.

"Relatives and friends of Adam are travelling to Bali (on Sunday) and handling all arrangements," a statement to the producer's Facebook page said.

"We ask you to respect the families privacy at this moment while we all come to terms with our tragic loss."

Nine News reported local police believe Neat crashed through a glass door at Hillstone Villas Resort, sliced his arm and died of blood loss.

He'd been rushing to help a friend who'd fallen several metres from a private pool area, Nine said.

Neat's website said he was a "powerhouse" of the dance music scene in Asia and had worked with global stars David Guetta and Afrojack.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson said the department was providing consular assistance to the family of an Australian man who had died in Bali, but for privacy reasons, it was unable to provide further details.
