BALIK PULAU: A man left a note indicating his intention to donate his organs before he leaped to his death from the 24th floor of a hotel at Teluk Kumbar here on Monday (Dec 2).

Southwest district OCPD Supt A. Anbalagan said the 30-year-old deceased landed into a swimming pool that was located on the eighth floor of the hotel in the 6.30pm incident.
