A 32-year-old woman who attempted to kill herself by jumping in Nam Van Lake last night retreated after two hours of police persuasion.

The woman, surnamed Leong and a local resident, refused to answer questions posed by the Public Security Police about the motives of the attempt and her other personal details, police spokesman Pun Sio Tong said.

Police received the report at about 20.35 pm and the woman was sent to the hospital after being saved.

The police spokesman said she also refused receiving a diagnosis although she was not sighted with having any injuries.

Police did not yet know if the 32-year-old was affected by alcohol as she was found near the bar area.

She was taken to the police station afterwards for a police report.
