KUANTAN – Four men went through an anxious moment on their way to Genting Highlands when the car they were travelling in plummeted into a 60-metre deep ravine, early this morning.
Bentong acting police chief, Deputy Superintendent S. Somu said in the 5am incident, the driver, S. Vijayavarman, 27, was rushed to Kuala Lumpur Hospital for injuries sustained to the head and right leg.

Meanwhile, P. Kirenraj, 27, was treated at Bentong Hospital for bodily injuries.
