Man with a history of epilepsy found drowned

5th October, 2020

By JAMES LEONG

BELURAN: A man with a history of epilepsy was found drowned in a pond at an oil palm farm in Kampung Liningkung, Telupid near here on Friday.

OCPD, Supt. Kasim Muda on Saturday said the 35-year-old man had followed his father to the place to catch fish.

The father, aged 69, left the victim alone for a while as he went to their car a short distance away. He found him floating in the water on his return moments later, Kasim said.

Kasim said the victim was brought by his father to the Telupid Health Clinic where he was pronounced dead, and according to his medical record, the victim had epilepsy.

Although our investigation at the scene had ruled out foul play, the victim’s body was sent to the Duchess of Kent Hospital in Sandakan for post-mortem, he added.

Kasim said the result of the Covid-19 test on the victim conducted by the Telupid Health officers was negative. “The victim is believed to have drowned and we have classified the case as sudden death,” he said.
