A 33-year-old man was killed after he jumped from the Wong Kuji waterfall at Mile 8, Jalan Engkamop, Bintangor,  Sarawak, yesterday.

A statement from the Fire and Rescue Department said they were alerted about 3.37pm and sent a team to the scene.

The deceased had apparently jumped from the waterfall, which is about two-stories high into the river.

However, the deceased did not surface and was later found by his friend in the river.

The friend had tried to revive him, but was unsuccessful.

The deceased was later pronounced dead and the body was handed over to the police for further action.
