Charred Body Of Unidentified Person Found Inside Burning Car In Malaysia
Last week, two victims perished in a horrific accident on a highway in Johor, Malaysia, when several vehicles burst into flames.
Unfortunately, a similar tragedy has struck again, this time over in Selangor.
In the wee hours of Friday morning (21 Oct), firefighters received an alert regarding a burning car on a road in the Klang District.
After they extinguished the blaze, they found a charred body inside.
Firefighters put out burning car on Selangor road
According to Astro Awani, the incident happened along Jalan Shapadu in Kampung Sungai Pinang.
Selangor Fire and Rescue Department chief Norazam Khamis said that firefighters received reports about a car on fire at 5.27am and promptly rushed to the scene.
They arrived about 10 minutes later and put out the flames, revealing a Perodua Kancil that had been completely destroyed.
Even more horrifying was the discovery of a charred body in the driver’s seat.
While the victim’s identity is pending confirmation, Free Malaysia Today reports that he is believed to be an elderly man in his 70s.
The victim’s body is now in the police’s possession awaiting further action. The authorities are currently investigating the cause of the inferno.
