Parents have been reminded to monitor their children amid the country’s current flood situation.
This is after a 15-year-old boy was found drowned in Kemaman to become Terengganu’s first fatality.
Cops believe the victim was playing in one-metre-deep flood waters before going missing.
The victim has since been sent to hospital for an autopsy.

It adds that it has over 26,000 full-time personnel and volunteer firefighters, who are ready to be mobilised to the flood-hit states.
