A total of nine individuals, including seven local tourists, faced anxious moments when the boat they were on capsized at Teluk Batik Beach here yesterday morning. However, all of them were successfully rescued by members of the public in an incident that occurred around 10:40 AM.

It is understood that the recreational boat, carrying two families and two crew members, capsized approximately nine meters from the shoreline. All the victims were reportedly not wearing life jackets while aboard the recreational boat.

Sayani Saidon, the Director of the Perak State Fire and Rescue Department, mentioned that a team of firefighters from the Seri Manjung Fire and Rescue Station swiftly responded to the scene after receiving information at 10:58 AM.

Upon arrival, they found a capsized boat with two victims struggling in the water.

"The victims were brought ashore by members of the public. A 17-year-old male victim, who is also a person with disabilities (OKU), regained consciousness and was taken to the hospital by the Emergency Medical Response Services (EMRS) team," Sayani said.

She added, "Another victim, a 34-year-old woman, received cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before being handed over to medical personnel for further treatment."

According to Sayani, the operation, led by the Head of the Seri Manjung Fire and Rescue Station, Suhaimy Mohd. Suhail, and the operations officer, Ismadi Darusman, concluded at 12:15 PM.

Always bear in mind that when engaging in water activities, wearing a life jacket is essential. If the boat crew doesn't provide one, it's best to avoid boarding the vessel.
