GEORGE TOWN: Quick action by two photographers managed to reduce a distressed woman at the Penang Bridge here.

Ahmad Zhafaran Nasib from Star Media Group and Masry Che Ani from The Sun Daily, sensed something amiss when they saw a woman believed to be in her 30s on the island-bound side of the bridge.

They pulled over and Masry managed to pull her to safety during the 12.30pm incident on Wednesday (March 9).

Ahmad Zhafaran then consoled the woman and calmed her down while waiting for the arrival of police and PLUS Malaysia Bhd personnel.
