He said five firefighters from the Bestari Jaya fire and rescue station were deployed to the scene, and the floodwaters were estimated to be about a metre deep.

“All the victims were working when the floodwaters overflowed into the area, leaving them trapped in the driving institute’s office. Water is still pooling around the area,” he said, adding that the rescue operation was carried out using a fibre boat.
