SHAH ALAM: Two fishermen faced anxious moments when their boat went adrift and capsized in waters around Kuala Langat due to a storm early today.
Selangor MMEA director Captain V. Siva Kumar (pix) said the agency was informed by the Port Klang Authority that the two fishermen had been rescued by a tugboat.
“An MMEA patrol boat was then mobilised to the location as soon as it received the information and managed to bring the two fishermen back to the shore by 2 pm,“ he said in a statement tonight.
According to Siva Kumar, the victims, Asmadi Saiman, 60, and his son Mohd Aslan Asmadi, 34, left the Kancung Laut Jetty at 5 pm yesterday.
“The two fishermen were taken to the Kelanang Jetty and handed over to the Civil Defence Force for a medical check-up,“ he said, adding that both of them were unharmed in the incident. - Bernama
