PETALING JAYA: A 24-year-old student, who went missing after swimming in Sungai Langat near the Dusun Tua National Youth Skills Institute (IKBN) campus was found alive by a river bank nearly 5km from where he was last seen yesterday morning.
The search for Muaz Fazil Abdul Wahab began after he was reported missing at around 11pm on Saturday.
He had apparently gone for a swim in the river in front of the campus.
“A search party consisting of 10 Kajang Fire and Rescue department officers and Bangi Emergency Medical Retrieval Service (EMRS) ambulance was organised on Saturday night.
“We found Muaz Fazil by a river bank at Lorong Niah Kundang along Jalan Hulu Selangor at around 10.20am,” said Selangor Fire and Rescue department operations director Mohd Sani Harul.
Muaz Fazil, who is said to be suffering from depression, was conscious and in healthy condition though he appeared exhausted and had scratches after his 10-hour ordeal, said Mohd Sani.
In Klang, a 29-year-old man died after he was hit by a train at the Teluk Pulai platform yesterday morning. The train was bound for KL Sentral.
South Klang police deputy chief Supt Goh Lee Fook said Lim Yong Tar, a vegetable seller, died from multiple injuries to his chest and left arm after he was dragged and squeezed between the train and the platform.
Based on a statement by a witness on the 8.08am incident, Supt Goh said the victim jumped on to the tracks as the train approached the station.
He said the police were unable to classify it as a suicide attempt, adding that an investigation on the victim’s medical record was under way. However, police confirmed the case as sudden death.
A relative of Lim, when met at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital, said the victim, from Bukit Tinggi, showed no signs of sadness.
“He chatted like normal on Saturday night and did not seem as if he was sad or worried about something,” he said.
