Police have detained three undergraduates and one secondary school student in Pahang for performing dangerous 'Superman' stunts on their motorcycles on the East Coast Expressway

According to Berita Harian, the arrests were made yesterday, 27 December, after a video of the students performing illegal stunts on the Sultan Ahmad Shah Bridge last Sunday, 24 December, went viral on social media.

The 28-second clip showed a group of motorcyclists speeding on the highway while the riders attempted to lie flat on their stomachs against their motorcycle seats, a stunt known as the 'Superman', before one lost control and fell on the road.

The other riders were then also seen falling onto the road as they attempted to avoid their fallen comrade and his motorcycle.
