IPOH: Human skeletal remains, clothes and the wreckage of an excavator were found today at the location where two quarry workers were feared buried in an incident in March at Keramat Pulai, Jalan Simpang Pulai-Cameron Highlands, here.
Perak fire and rescue department director Azmi Osman said the wreckage was found by a search and rescue team that also involved the minerals and geosciences department at 11.45am today, while the skeletal remains and clothes were found about half an hour later.
“We have yet to determine the identity of the victim,” he said when contacted.
In the March 8 incident, two quarry workers who were believed to have been trapped under rock debris were identified as Itam Lasoh, 43, and Kheow Loo Siew Soon, 49.
In April, former Perak police chief Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the case was classified as sudden death even though the two victims had not yet been found.
A check by Bernama at the scene of the incident found that the search efforts were still ongoing.
Meanwhile, Perak police chief Yusri Hassan Basri said the human skeletal remains found earlier today had been sent to the forensics department of the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital here for a post-mortem.
He said a DNA test would also be conducted to identify the victim.
Yusri said the search and rescue operation was led by Ipoh police chief Yahaya Hassan, with the cooperation of the Perak fire and rescue department, and the minerals and geosciences department.
