GEORGE TOWN: A 26-year-old student, said to be the nephew of a deputy minister, survived a jump from the Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge just four days after its grand opening.
The incident happened at about 2.40pm yesterday while the youth was on the way to the island.
He was rescued by fishermen some 500m from KM13.9 of the new bridge.
The student was then brought to the marine police base in Batu Uban.
He is now undergoing treatment at the Penang Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.
Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Lai Fah Hin said the student is in stable condition.
“We will investigate the case under Section 309 of the Penal Code for attempted suicide,” he said.
