A man who was thought to have fallen and disappeared down a sewage drain in Jalan Raja Laut, Kuala Lumpur, suddenly ‘appeared’ behind the crowd of people who gathered to watch rescue personnel who were busy searching for him.
The 27-year-old Myanmar man also admitted to returning home after falling into the drain and showered before returning to the scene of the incident.
According to a report by Berita Harian, the man only found out that he was the reason for the search after more than an hour of the Malaysian Civil Defense Force’s (APM) efforts in searching the area as well as the sewage drain, which is said to be about 3.65 meters deep.
APM Kuala Lumpur officer, Major (PA) Ahmad Junaidi Dukut Soeharto shared that his team received an emergency call about the incident at 5.51pm, before 14 members, along with some machinery from APM Kuala Lumpur and APM Gombak, rushed to the location to help the fallen man.
“As soon as we arrived, we were informed that a victim had fallen in a drain which is also a sewage area, 3.65 meters deep. When the search for the victim was carried out for more than an hour in the area, a 27-year-old Myanmar man was present at the location,”
“The man informed that he was the victim who fell into the drain while mowing the grass, after stepping on the zinc that covered the sewage drain. The victim said that he immediately clung to the lawnmower to climb up before immediately returning home to clean himself up,” he said.
The man was, thankfully, not injured.
