The semi-decomposed body of a man was found under the Sungai Kelantan bridge at Kampung Tendong in Pasir Mas today.

Kota Baru police chief ACP Baharom Abu said a passing cyclist spotted the body floating along a pile of wood and garbage about 9.30am.

"The man was believed to have died more than three days ago," he told reporters today.

He said the body was sent to the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital, adding the police had not received any missing person report.

Meanwhile, the cyclist, Mohd Erman Abdullah, 25, said he stumbled on the body when he stopped to take a 'selfie' photo on the bridge.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
