Based on Harian Metro, Dungun District Police Chief, Superintendent Baharudin Abdullah confirmed that a report regarding the incident was received.

“When he was passing through the neighbourhood to get to a surau to perform Zohor prayers, the victim is said to have suddenly come out of the fence of her house, the driver failed to dodge her and ended up hitting the child. Both parents of the child rushed her to the Paka Health Clinic but it was confirmed that she had died,” he said.

The poor little girl had so much of her life yet to be lived, she was clearly taken too soon. Our condolences to the girl’s family.
