GEORGE TOWN: Police have yet to question the 26-year-old student who leapt off the second Penang bridge as his condition remains unstable.
Sources said the youth was still warded at the Penang Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.
Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Lai Fah Hin said the police had yet to record his statement.
“His condition is not stable yet and we will allow him to rest first,” he said.
It was reported that the student, a nephew of a deputy minister, was saved by fishermen after he fell off KM13.9 of the newly opened Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah Bridge.
The youth was said to be heading towards Batu Maung on the island from Bukit Mertajam when he leapt off the bridge at around 2.40pm on Wednesday — just four days after the bridge’s grand opening.
The case will be investigated under Section 309 of the Penal Code.
