Divers took more than 20 minutes to recover the body of the man, named by police as Zin Kyaw Kyaw Lat Jaw Lar, 32, who they reported was “a migrant worker”.

Mr Yaw’s body was pinned under the motorbike at a depth of four metres in the canal.

“People in the area found her floating in the canal under the bridge and pulled her ashore,” said Lt Jaran Lempan of the Wichit Police.
