The small island is located between the islands of Komodo and Rinca, and is part of the Komodo archipelago of East Nusa Tenggara province.

According to local authorities, Vanapirome died due to a cardiac arrest. “His body is now at the Marombok Regional General Hospital in Labuan Bajo,” Labuan Bajo Flores Tourism Authority director Shana Fatina confirmed.
