And according to Sin Chew, another person is presumed to have jumped off the bridge this morning (31st December 2019) at approximately 5.45am.
The missing person, 34-year-old July A/L Nee, left his car at 3.4km on the bridge and hasn’t been seen since, and so presumably jumped off the bridge as well. His family rushed to the scene immediately after hearing the news.
