Three Utar students drown at waterfall, a fourth rescued


KAMPAR: A second tragedy has struck here, hardly a week after the Kuala Dipang bridge collapse took three young lives.

Three Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman undergraduates drowned after they were swept away by strong current at the Batu Berangkai waterfalls yesterday.

The dead have been identified as James Khor Wan Kai, 20; Yew Shy Gin, 19 and Yew Ghim Chnieh, 20.

A fourth student was rescued by a villager.

The four had gone to the picnic spot for a swim at about 5pm.

Three of them had gone into the water and the fourth student was about to follow them when a sudden gush of water caused him to tumble in.

A Kampar villager, who saw this, rushed over and pulled out the fourth student.

Perak executive councillor Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon, who related the story to newsmen, said the survivor — 22-year-old second-year accountancy student — declined to speak to the press and did not want to be named.

He suffered cuts and bruises.

At about 9.40pm, nearby villagers found Khor’s body while Yew’s body was found at 11.10pm, one kilometre from where they went into the water.

Their bodies have been sent to the Kampar Hospital.

Businessman Syed Farudi Syed Samsuddin, who saw the three students being swept away by the strong current, said their hands and legs were bobbing in the water.

Syed Farudi, 41, from Mambang Diawan, said he could see that they were struggling.

“There was nothing I could do,” he said.

It happened so fast, he said, adding that it had been raining heavily before the incident occurred.

The Batu Berangkai picnic spot is 15km from where three pupils drowned after a suspension bridge collapsed over Sungai Kampar last Monday.

iii) The six victims of the dragon boat incidents?

obviously, they don't..

...remember em.

IMHO, the funeral could have been better if these jokers werent there.
If you happen to know any of em in this scout troop, or to be precise,
those WHICHwho were laughing as though they jizzed in their pants,
do feel ashamed on behalf of them.

P/S: Funeral is not funny,animals.

iv) Not forgetting, my ex-bowling teammate, Low Kim Hong.

A very special and unique birthday gift from him, in fact, never had any pressie which is more unique than the one he gave me as birthday present :)

Just to let you know, bro,

I did wear it, proudly.


Do you still remember them?
There are thousands and millions more families who
could not be with their loved ones this coming CNY.
They desperately wanting to, but they are not able to;
not anymore.

Chinese New Year turns black for them,
all we can do is to say our prayers for them,
may the families of the deceased,
walk out from the dark side of the world,
so to meet the brighter side of the world,
may CNY brush off their sadness
give them strengths to get life going.

As for you, yourself,
Enjoy your CNY to the fullest,
Do remember your loved ones.

Happy Chinese New Year & Valentine's
in advance

*4hours before leaving malaysia to Perth :)
