Remember the young man who went missing after jumping off the Penang bridge over the weekend?
In a most recent update, his body was found floating near the Pengkalan Raja Uda Jetty earlier today (Tuesday, 25th August).
According to Seberang Perai Tengah district police chief, Asst Commissioner Shafee Abd Samad, the body was discovered by the rescue and search team at around 8:45am. He further added that the body was taken by the firemen to the Marine Police Force Jetty in Batu Uban.
Additionally, the Health Ministry (MoH) is also in charge of conducting the sanitisation procedure towards the 24-year-old’s dead body. After completing the process, the body will be sent to the Forensic Unit of Seberang Jaya Hospital for an autopsy.
In the video that went viral earlier this week, the 24-year-old was seen jumping off the bridge. He was also spotted leaving his red Perodua Bezza mobile at the side of the road, with the engine still on.
