Steven Brooks Webster, of Huntington Beach, Calif., was confirmed dead by morgue authorities in Indonesia, his friend Trent Walker said from Newport Beach, Calif.
Steven Cabler, one of Webster’s friends who survived the blast, was treated for third-degree burns. He arrived home in California on Monday night and spoke briefly with reporters about the bombing before hearing that his friend had died.
“It was hell on Earth,” said Cabler, seated in a wheelchair with both of his hands heavily bandaged. “All I saw was people burning, little girls with their hair on fire trying to put it out.”
