PEKAN: Fire­man Muham­mad Adib Mohd Kas­sim, 24, who was se­verely in­jured dur­ing a ri­ot­ing in­ci­dent at the Sri Maha Mari­amman Tem­ple in USJ 25, Subang Jaya re­cently is still re­ly­ing on sev­eral life sup­port ma­chines to al­low his in­ter­nal or­gans to heal.

Fire and Res­cue Depart­ment di­rec­tor-gen­eral Datuk Mo­ham­mad Ham­dan Wahid said he was in­formed of the mat­ter by spe­cial­ists at the Na­tional Heart In­sti­tute (IJN) who are closely mon­i­tor­ing Muham­mad Adib’s con­di­tion since he was ad­mit­ted on Nov 28.

“He is still crit­i­cal but sta­ble, how­ever, he has shown a lot of pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ments and we be­lieve he has the strength to re­cover with the help of IJN spe­cial­ists.

“The doc­tors also said some sup­port equip­ment is still be­ing used to en­sure the res­pi­ra­tory, blood flow and heart func­tions can be re­stored to their op­ti­mum lev­els,” he said.

He was speak­ing to re­porters af­ter the in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony held in con­junc­tion with the Birth­day of the Sul­tan of Pa­hang, Sul­tan Ah­mad Shah, at Is­tana Abu Bakar here yes­ter­day.

Doc­tors had ear­lier taken Muham­mad Adib off the life sup­port ma­chine for his heart af­ter it was able to func­tion on its own. – Ber­nama
