JASIN – The body of a fisherman who drowned while swimming in choppy sea to salvage his boat which was adrift off the Pantai Siring fishing jetty near here last night was found yesterday.

Ibrahim Mat’s body was found entangled in fishing nets about 9.22am, about 500 metres from where he was last seen struggling in the water before he disappeared.

At that time, an angler had hurled a lifebuoy to the 51-year-old but the latter failed to catch it. The incident occurred about 9.30pm.

The body was sent to the Malacca Hospital. – Bernama
