KEMAMAN: “Although we are deeply saddened, my wife and I are thankful and satisfied that we could perform the cleansing of body and prepare our children for burial,” said Wan Mohd Kamaruzaman Wan Muhammad, 56, the father of three sibling who were killed in an accident at Kampung Batu Putih, Pekan yesterday.

Kamaruzaman and his wife, Rosnani Ibrahim, 53, did not expect such tragic incident to take place as they were performing umrah in the holy land.

“Before my wife and I left, we were all happy and we had advised the three of them to be careful on their way back home to Kemaman.

“I had also asked them to pray for our health while we were performing umrah, but we did not expect for them to go first,” he said when met in Kemaman, today.

After sending their parents and sister off, the other three siblings – Wan Nur Athirah, 27, Wan Nur Afifah, 25, and Wan Muhammad Mahathir Rafiqi, 14 – had taken the opportunity to drive to Melaka for a short break.

The return journey to Terengganu, however, turned tragic when the trio were killed in an accident after the Chery Eastar multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) they were travelling in hit a roadside barrier.

The impact led the MPV to turn turtle as it landed in a large drain.
