GEORGE TOWN: The victim who was trapped in a crushed car for more than 24 hours after a ramp leading to the Second Penang Bridge collapsed is believed to be 45-year-old Tajuddin Zainal Abidin, a former policeman, from Permatang Damar Laut, based on identification by family members.

In a press conference, Penang deputy police chief SAC Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar said the body of the victim was retrieved from beneath the rubble at 8.49pm, and his identity could not be verified as lighting at the site was poor.
