The couple and their family, who have been spending time in the United States over the summer, were said to have landed in the popular tourist destination on Saturday, the day of the quake.

At a collapsed mosque in Bangsal district, emergency workers in orange uniforms removed a woman's body from the ruins on Wednesday morning.

Lombok lies on the Ring of Fire, a belt surrounding the Pacific Ocean that is especially prone to earthquakes and volcanoes.

Visiting the island as a "bucket-list" trip for their daughter Logan, who has cancer, the family felt trapped in their hotel room as more than 130 aftershocks hit the island following the quake.

With her daughter's weakened condition, Montgomery-Lay says that the family was unsure that she could handle the crowds that descended on Lombok's ferry terminal and airport trying to get off the island.

Rescuers rushed to access remote areas, where survivors are in dire need of shelter and food. The quake has caused much more damage than the one a few days ago - destroying roads, bridges, disrupting electricity and communications and damaging huge numbers of buildings.

"The number of victims keep rising", BNPB spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told reporters on Wednesday. It's hard for help to reach them.

"Only this morning were we fearless enough to come down".

Oxfam said more than 20,000 people were in temporary shelters and thousands more were camping out in the open.

"We have no clean water, so if we want to go to the toilet we use a small river nearby", he said, adding they needed food, bedding and medicine.

Villagers in Pemenang on Lombok's northwestern shoulder heard cries for help emerging from the mangled concrete of a collapsed minimart on Tuesday and alerted rescuers. They used their hands, crowbars and whatever they could to free her. Machinery was eventually brought in and she was pulled to safety after four hours.

Supartana said two people had been found alive, along with three bodies.

The scuba instructors, known as Fee and OJ by friends and locals, evacuated the island and headed to Bali yesterday after a magnitude 7.0 quake struck Lombok island on Sunday night.

Search and rescue activities are ongoing.

Official advcie reads: "If you're planning to travel to Bali, Lombok or the Gili Islands in the coming days, you should keep your travel plans under close review and seek the advice of your transport and accommodation providers before travelling, and ensure that you have contingency plans and travel insurance in place".

But with not enough boats to evacuate tourists quickly and too few planes to fly them out of Lombok, many visitors were forced to wait for hours or camp on beaches and the floor of the global airport in Mataram.

Nugroho added that all 2,700 foreign and domestic tourists have been evacuated from Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, the three tourist islets off the northwestern coast of Lombok after nine boats were deployed to transport them to the mainland. "Very quickly I shouted to the kids to run outside", Rye resident Boukje Van Den Bosch-Schmits told us by phone.
