What a tragedy..

Refer to previous post...

So, what had actually happend yesterday?? What had caused the accident in a first place? Well, let me relate my sister's story as she was there to witness the whole traumatised accident...

It was the most anticipated event for the whole 'kampung' people as they were allowed to fish at the nearby 'Bom-bon' (The river at Kg. Malangang, Kiulu where the village folks breed fresh water fishes in it). For your info, nobody is allowed to do any fishing at the Bom-bon except one particular day (in the month of Nov, if i'm not mistaken la). For some reasons (which i don't know what), the villager is allowed to fish there (yesterday) only with a fish pole with no net at all. Oh! If you think to 'curi-curi' fishing at the Bom-bon, you are definitely going to be 'sogit' by the kampung. Don't play..play oh! They say, there is a spirit looking after the place.
So yesterday, my BIL's nephew who rarely see any river in his whole life, for the first time went to join my nephews to swim at the river. My sister said, the moment he saw the water flowing, he got toooooooo excited and forgot about all the advices given by nephews not to swim far away from the river bank.(He cannot swim at all). It was only few minutes he swam, when all of sudden he went to dive at the very very deeeeeeeeeep part of the river. One moment he was so happy swimming around with my nephews, the next thing they know he was already inside the water. My nephew Aaron said, there was something inside the water that pull his cousin inside. (SCARRRRRRYYYY!!!!). My nephews and sister screamed on top of their lungs asking for everybody's help. My two brothers, BIL and the whole kampung male population dived inside the water to help BIL's nephew. It wasn't easy job for them as the current was pretty strong. The other people at the downpart of the river were quick to make a line from end-to-end of the bank to ensure the nephew won't pass through them.
Gallivanter corrected me not use the word drown as it means the person is already dead. There wasn't any mistakes when i said the nephew drowned for 3 minutes yesterday because when they managed to pull him out, he was no longer breathing, he already turned blue and the abdomen was sooooooo bloated with water. Thank God my two brothers and BIL have the experience to do CPR and they took turned performing CPR on the nephew. They were lucky because after few attempts, the nephew vomitted lotssss of water + blood + and even sand.
My brother drove the nephew to the nearby hospital (which is in Tuaran) like a mad person. Of course i don't know how fast he drove, but my sister say..It was really fast. Short after reaching Tuaran hospital, the nephew was transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hopital for futher treatment as he was really..really in a bad condition...! His lung was severed and his stomach had to be cleaned promptly. (he drank toooo much water + sand).
My mom, went to talk to the nephew and keep asking him to fight for his life. She pray and pray and pray, hoping the nephew will somehow hears her prayer and regain his consciousness.
Whatever happend yesterday was pretty scary and traumatized experience for the whole villagers as never in their life they have to witness near death incident.
But that was yesterday, today...i received a good news from my sister a while ago. When they visited him, the nephew has already woke up and has been crying non-stop. So kesian! He was so traumatized until he cannot even stop crying! Another good news is, no damaged found to his brain as he is able to recognize family members who visited him..imagine the damage it could do to the brain without Oxygen for 3 minutes...*sigh*
So here I am, thanking all of you who keep BIL's nephew in your prayer. With all the prayers he recieved, God really keep him safe for his family. Thanx you again.....

Thank God he is safe. Keep on praying for his speedy recovery. In fact this kid is my wife's student at S.K St. Anthony Penampang. She told me this tragedy on Tuesday. And on Wednesday the kid's cousin told the teachers that he has regained concious. Hopefully he will be fit to sit the UPSR next week...

Kadus_Mama said...

ornest ~ iya bah..small world betul oh! Memang he is a brilliant student pun.. :( hope he can make it next week..

chegu carol said...

Ornest...ask ur wife, got vacancy kah at her school? mau apply transfer bah ni....

So glad that he finally regained consciousness. must be hell of a time for the family when the boy was in ICU. Hopefully he will be healthy enough to sit for UPSR next Tuesday. But I think, in some special case, he can take the exam at his hospital bed bah. Im not sure of the procedure though.

emelda said...

Fuh, thank goodness! Susah hati juga sekejap...

Itu logon lapar motu? Inda kena kasih makan ka tu logon?since the place got penjaga konon.

Kadus_Mama said...

chegu carol ~ aik?? mau minta transfer kah???
Yesterday, he can laughed already..a very good sign that he is recovering..but tiba2 pandai depressed nie..
if he can take the exam in hospital pun ok uga.. :)

emelda ~ uiii jan ko..suma orang pun worry oh!! thank god he is safe..
Orang kampung cakap the river memang tiap2 tahun ada orang mati nie..but this year belum ada lagi..who knows the 'spirit' lapar sudah..*SCARY!!!!*

Poppet said...

PTL he is ok and pray that he is recovering well.God works in mysterious way... so just pray and put our hope in Him la kan.. I am sure he is still can remember the experience that's why he tiba2 pandai depress.

Kadus_Mama said...
