SHAH ALAM, June 4 — 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 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 2pm,” 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 5pm 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.
