KUCHING: Workers putting up the safety railings along the monsoon drain at Jalan Rock in Kuching, a week after a mishap happened there.

The spot is believed to be the place where 19-year-old Kho Ying Qi slipped and went missing after she fell into the monsoon drain last Jan 5 around 7am following a flash flood.

The late Herman Sihas @ Mohd Sulaiman Abdullah, who was trying to save Kho, was also swept away by the swift-flowing water in the drain.

Herman’s body was discovered on Jan 7.

The search for Kho is still on. Rows of flowers have been placed along the drain. — Photo by Chimon Upon
