SEBERANG JAYA (Jan 22): The family of Moey Yun Peng, 20, the college student who was killed after his sports uitlity vehicle plunged into the sea from the Penang Bridge following an accident on Sunday, wants the authorities to conduct a thorough probe so that justice is served.
His elder brother, who only wanted to be known as Dennis, said the family accepted what had happened and hoped the authorities would leave no stone unturned so that justice is done for Yun Peng.
"We leave it to the police and hope we can be given privacy to mourn our loss,” he told reporters after arriving at the Seberang Jaya Hospital’s Forensics Department here tonight to claim Yun Peng’s body.
He also hoped that the public will not make baseless speculation on what actually happened and also not disturb the probe.
He added that the funeral would be held at the Berapit Chinese Cemetery on Thursday.
In the 3am incident, the Mazda CX-5 Yun Peng was driving was involved in a collison with a Toyota Vios before it plunged into the sea from the bridge.
The search and rescue team had an ardous task in the retrieval operation because of the depth (15 metres) and strong currents.
They only succeeded in raising the wreck at 6.07 pm today.
Yun Peng’s body was still in the driver’ seat with the safety belt still fastened.
