GEORGE TOWN: A 14-year-old teenager is believed to have drowned while he was swimming at the Teluk Bahang beachfront, near the Tropical Spice Garden recreational area here.
A Teluk Bahang Fire and Rescue Department spokesman told journalists that they had received a distress call at about 12.58pm today, and immediately rushed to the scene.
They found the youngster lying motionless by the beach with a crowd gathered around him.
A few passers-by appeared to have attempted a CPR procedure on the teenager but unfortunately, there was no response.
He was pronounced dead shortly before he was handed over to a medical officer for a post-mortem to be conducted.
The spokesperson urged those out for a picnic along the coastline to be wary of the high tide, as the waves can pull swimmers under.
