What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. We’re bound to face failures and challenges in life. They are, no doubt, painful but necessary to make us better and wiser, like a caterpillar morphing into a butterfly.

However, the moment of weakness sometimes just gets to us. Out of fear of getting scolded, a 17-year-old teenager jumped off the Penang Bridge into the sea after failing her JPJ Theory Test 2 consecutive times, better known as the Undang test among the locals. Fortunately, she could swim, which she immediately did after jumping into the sea. However, she got stuck in the swamp near the port, and was only rescued 2 days later!

We can’t imagine the cold and hunger she had to brace through before she was found.

According to a statement by the Fire & Rescue Department in Penang, the teen left her motorcycle on the bridge on December 21 around 11 in the morning before jumping off the bridge.

Throughout the 45 hours before her rescue, she tried to wave her hand to attract attention but to no avail. Fortunately, the firefighters noticed the fearful teen who was clinging to the tree and hung on to her dear life.

The Penang Fire and Rescue Department was notified by the police at 10:25 am on December 23 that a girl was found at the Penang port at 9:00 am. She was weak when she was found but above all, she made it out alive.

What we need at times, are supportive words, and words of affirmation. It’s okay to fail twice. Many successful people collapsed many, many times before they rose to success.
