Man Drowns While Looking For Crabs

September 21, 2009

Malaysia: A man looking for “belangkas” (horseshoe crabs) along the Tanjung Lumpur coast here on Monday drowned after he was apparently dragged into the sea by strong undercurrents.

Kuantan police chief ACP Mohd Jasmani Yusoff said the body of Mohd Nazri Ibrahim, 25, of Kampung Peramu here, was found by an elder brother at 12.20pm, about four hours after he had spotted personal items of Mohd Nazri at a spot on the coast.

The sibling had lodged a police report earlier, and a search-and-rescue team was despatched to look for Mohd Nazri, he said.
