MIRI, June 16: A six-feet long crocodile was rescued from a drain of a secondary school in Bakam last night.

It took firefighters from the Miri fire station nearly three hours to secure the reptile.

According to Miri fire station chief Mohamad Hamdani Madon, they rushed to SMK Agama Miri after receiving an alert about the reptile’s presence inside one of the school’s drains at 8.42pm.

The school is located near the Esplanade Beach and Bakam Beach. It is believed that the reptile might have travelled from the beach to the school before it ended up inside one of the school’s drains.

The rescue mission ended around 11.40pm.

The crocodile has been handed over to the Sarawak Forest Department for further action. — DayakDaily
