KUANTAN, Oct 16 — A man, believed to be mentally unsound, was found dead hanging from the window grill of Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital (HTAA) here early this morning after he was admitted to the psychiatric ward seven hours earlier.

Kuantan district police chief ACP Mohamad Noor Yusof Ali said the 58-year-old man from Kampung Cendering here was found at the ward isolation room at about 5.50 am.

“A hospital staff was believed to have lowered the victim and gave the patient cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) before he was confirmed dead by a doctor at 6.20 am,” he told reporters here today.

The victim’s body was sent to HTAA Forensic Department for a post-mortem, he said.
