    One man missing after boat capsizes near KK resort

    ANN/THE STAR – A man is missing while his two friends managed to swim to safety after their boat capsized in waters near a resort off Karambunai near Kota Kinabalu (KK), Sabah yesterday morning.

    A Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said they were notified of the incident at 6.07am.

    “Our operations room received a report from the public about the boat capsizing near the Karambunai Nexus Resort,” the spokesman said when contacted.

    A six-man team and an Emergency Medical Rescue Services unit were immediately dispatched to the area, he said.

    “There were three people involved in the incident. Two managed to save themselves while the third man was still missing together with the boat,” the spokesman said.

    He added, however, that the department had yet to get the exact details of the incident, including the names of the three people involved.

    “We are still investigating at the scene,” he said.

    In a separate incident, authorities suspended the search for a 61-year-old man who was reported to have gone missing at a commercial fishing pond in the interior Keningau district.

    This was after people claimed to have seen Dailo Jair buying groceries last Sunday, two days after he was reported missing, at a store in Kampung Bunsit, some six kilometres from the site of his “disappearance”.
