The victim’s friend said that he saw Lian struggling and trying to ask for help while snorkelling. Seeing Lian in distress, a few of his friends quickly jumped into the water to save him. They managed to haul him out, and a nearby officer quickly performed CPR on him. Lian was rushed to the nearest clinic but sadly, the young man, who resided in Petaling Jaya, was declared dead there. 

The police confirmed that they received a call from the Pulau Redang Clinic at around 10.2am, saying that Lian had passed away. In the second tragedy of the day, the police said that the second victim was 58 years old, and was identified as Lim Wei Harng.
