KUALA LUMPUR: The badly-decomposed body of a South Korean man was found hanged from a shower curtain railing in the bathroom of an apartment unit at Kiaramas Sutera here, last night.

A Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said it was called in to assist police in breaking down the door of the unit, following reports by neighbouring apartment residents of a foul smell emanating from it.

Six firemen were deployed to the scene at 11.28pm.

"After the firemen broke down the door, the team saw the body of a man hanging in the bathroom," he said.

The man was clad only in a pair of shorts and is believed to have been dead for more than 48 hours.
