A Burmese man who was repeatedly stabbed by unknown assailants and thrown into the sea on Saturday has survived the ordeal, reports The Star, a Malaysian daily. The incident occurred while the man, believed to be in his 20s, was relaxing alone on a jetty in George Town, the capital of Malaysia’s Penang State. After the attack, the victim managed to swim back to shore, even though he was partially disemboweled. Local police said that the man, who did not have any identification documents, was being treated at Penang Hospital for treatment. They also said that they had yet to establish any motive for the attack.
