Search continues for missing angler at Sg Cerul

KEMAMAN (Bernama): A man is missing and feared drowned after he was swept away by the current while fishing with three others in Sungai Cerul, Bandar Baru Cheneh here, on Sunday (July 18).

Cheneh Fire and Rescue Department chief Mohamad Hanif Che Khalid said the incident happened when Muhamad Zulkefli Ismail, 34, entered the water to retrieve a fish.

"His 14-year-old nephew tried to save him but failed,” he said when contacted on Monday (July 19).

Rescue teams could only comb a limited area on Sunday night due to failing light but continued the search at 8am on Monday.

"We are focusing our search within a 700m radius from the spot where the victim was last seen,” Mohamad Hanif said. – Bernama
