SIMUNJAN: The first body of a victim from the Sebuyau helicopter crash has been retrieved and brought over the Sebuyau dock at 1.05pm.

The search and rescue (SAR) team who had earlier traversed the Batang Lupar river to scour the area for victims and debris, returned with the body wrapped in white canvas.

The body is believed to have been found near where helicopter debris were recovered, some 15km away towards inland from the dock.

The body was later loaded onto a police truck and is now headed to the Kuching General Hospital for post-mortem.
