KUALA LUMPUR: The identity of a Malaysian man, who was believed to have died in floods in Queensland, Australia, has yet to be confirmed.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said the body was believed to be that of corn farm worker Fan Swee Leong which was retrieved from a car after the flood waters receded.
"This led the Australian police to Swee Leong's home where they found his passport. Further process to confirm the identity of the deceased will have to be carried out," he said in a statement.
Reports said a Malaysian, identified as Andrew Leong, 34, from Subang Jaya, was reported to have plunged into a swollen river in Lockyer Valley while driving to work on Sunday.
Anifah said the ministry had notified Swee Leong's family and would render assistance needed.
He said the Malaysian High Commission in Canberra would continue to monitor the flood situation in Queensland, particularly on the safety Malaysian citizens and students in the affected areas. - Bernama
