GOMBAK: Hiker Hardip Singh, who went missing in Taman Rimba Templer jungle since Wednesday evening, was found by rescuers about 11am today.
The 51-year-old, who broke his left shoulder, was found at a river (anak sungai) about 3km from the park's entrance by a team of two civilian hikers and two Orang Asli, who volunteered to help the rescue mission.
One of the Orang Asli then rushed back to notify the rescue operations centre before a team of paramedics and rescuers were sent to give medical aid and bring him out.
The team brought Hardip out from the jungle at 2.35pm, before he was sent to Selayang Hospital by an ambulance.
Selangor Fire and Rescue Department assistant director (operations) Mohd Sani Harul said the rescue operations involved more than 200 people from the fire department, police, Civil Defence Department, Forestry Department, Hash House Harrier's club, Orang Asli and volunteers.
Hardip's wife J. Lallsur Madhumalasur,44, said she was very happy upon learning about the finding about 1pm, and expressed gratitude to all the person involved in rescuing the victim.
