MIRI: A 34-year-old woman was taken to Miri Hospital around 11pm on Monday after she drank bleach in her rented room at Jalan Hokkien.

It is believed that the woman’s actions were triggered by an argument with her boyfriend.

A team of Civil Defence Force (APM) personnel rushed to the scene after receiving a distress call from the woman’s boyfriend at 10.28pm.

APM Miri officer Capt Mohd Hazle Shah Abdul Hamid said the team arrived at the scene at 10.35pm and found the woman unconscious.

“The team learnt that the woman had fainted after consuming bleach and they immediately took her to Miri Hospital for treatment,” he said.
