Search ongoing for man feared drowned in Hulu Langat

PETALING JAYA: The search-and-rescue operation is ongoing for a man feared drowned in Hulu Langat.

The man, identified as Taufik Alias, 23, was seen in a viral video of the incident to have been swept away by flood waters while trying to hold onto his submerged motorcycle.

In the video, a man in a black shirt is also seen trying to help the victim.

The motorcyclist was then seen floating for several metres before his helmet came off.

A Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) spokesman on Monday said the man has still not been found.

On Saturday, Bomba received a call about flash floods along the banks of Sungai Hulu Langat at 3.50pm.

More than a hundred people have been evacuated following the floods.
