The East Jakarta Fire and Rescue Agency have found the body of a man who apparently drowned in the Ciliwung River on Sunday. The officers later identified the man as Rafli Nurizki, 19, who reportedly went missing on Saturday.
Gatot Sulaiman from the agency said some eyewitnesses saw Rafli jump into the river on Saturday. He reportedly had mental health problems. Residents and officers tried to save him but he was carried away by the strong current. The agency later launched a search for Rafli, deploying 12 officers.
The authorities found Rafli dead on Sunday afternoon.
“Our team only found him at 3.11 p.m. [on Sunday] after he was declared missing a day before,” Gatot said on Sunday as reported by Warta Kota. (ami/dmr)
