Fishing trip takes ugly turn

A fishing trip along the Jalan Mulaut riverbank took a tragic turn on Tuesday evening, after a crocodile allegedly dragged a local male teenager into the river.

The victim’s lifeless body was discovered hours later, 1.5 kilometres away from the scene of the incident.

ASO Metusin bin Haji Menudin led four firefighters from the Jerudong Fire Station, while ABK 670 Amir Hassan bin Haji Bidin led five firefighters from the Rimba Fire Station Special Squad to the scene after the 6.04pm distress call was received, the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) said.
