He said when the team had arrived at the location, the girl was sitting at the edge of the bridge. The police tried to persuade her to calm down while firefighters were called to help place nets under the bridge.


As the police were trying to persuade the girl, Bukit Tinggi Police Station Chief Sergeant Major Maznan Omar managed to come close to the victim from the back and pulled her down from the bridge.


Zaiham said the the girl was allegedly depressed after being reprimanded by her father for playing video games too often on her mobile phone. Her father had also confiscated her phone.
