RMN Rescues Two Divers off Pulau Jarak

10 Apr 2022, Kuala Lumpur: Two divers who were reported missing while diving near Pulau Jarak, Lumut, Perak were rescued by the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN), yesterday.

The victims, locals aged 34 and 36, were spotted by RMN members who were patrolling at the RMN Offshore Station, Pulau Jarak at 7.15pm.

RMN in its statement said, the quick action of its members managed to save the two victims who were tired and dehydrated.

He said, as a result of the inspection carried out, the two men were reported in stable condition and did not suffer any injuries.

“Early this morning, two Fast Combat Boat (FCB) boats from the Western Fleet Command Headquarters were arranged to move to the RMN Offshore Station.

“The KD Lekiu ship which is on the Op Benteng Laut Sea assignment and is closest to the scene was instructed to provide initial assistance for the evacuation process of the two victims.

“The two victims were taken back to the Lumut RMN Base before being handed over to the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) this morning to report the incident,” he said today.

The RMN also advises the public to inform any implementation of maritime activities that are risky like this to the authorities such as MMEA, Royal Malaysian Police (RMP) or RMN before conducting any activities at sea.

“Apart from serving as information to the nearby maritime authorities, it is also to ensure that assistance can be channeled and arranged to move more quickly in the event of an emergency,” he said.

Earlier, the media reported that two divers from Kampung Aceh, Lumut were reported missing while doing scuba diving activities with three friends in the waters of Pulau Jarak, yesterday.
