Merdeka.com – One motorcyclist disappeared after being dragged away by the swift overflowing water of the Cibuyut River, Tasikmalaya Regency, West Java, Friday (7/10). The victim is still being searched, while his motorbike has been found.
Cihaurbeuti Police Chief AKP M Farkhan said that the area of Cihaurbeuti Village, Cihaurbeuti District, Ciamis Regency had been raining from noon until the afternoon. This condition caused the overflow of the Cibuyut river in the hamlet of Kaler Village.
Farkhan revealed that the overflow of the Cibuyut River caused a flood disaster. As a result of the flood, the motorbike and its rider were carried away by the current.
The motor that was carried by the current, said Farkhan, was eventually found stuck in the boundary wall of the bridge. “For the driver whose identity is not yet known, currently they have not been found and are still being searched,” he said.
In addition to continuing to search for the missing driver, Farkhan also coordinates with relevant agencies in handling disasters that occur in the area.
