Tragic loss: The elder brother of Ahmad Ilham Fikri (inset) pointing at the goal post which crushed the eight-year-old at a field in Taman Sri Wangsa, Batu Pahat.
BATU PAHAT: An eight-year-old boy who was playing football died after he was crushed by a goal post in a field some 200m away from his house.
Ahmad Ilham Fikri Ahmad Zaki died of head trauma during the 6.30pm incident on Monday in Taman Sri Wangsa here. He also suffered excessive bleeding and a broken jaw.
Although the Year Two pupil of SK Bukit Soga was quickly rushed to Hospital Sultanah Nora Ismail by his father, Ahmad Zaki Mohd Abu Khairi, 35, the boy died.
His mother Norsukhaila Mohd Noh, 36, said she was shocked when her eldest son, who saw what happened, told her about it.
“I have always disallowed him to play at the field but somehow, that day, I let him go with his elder brother,” she said at their home here yesterday.
She said she was preparing dinner when she was told of Ahmad Ilham Fikri’s accident.
“I am heartbroken because I was just about to prepare fried squid. It was my son’s favourite,” said the mother of three.
Norsukhaila said Ahmad Ilham Fikri had been looking forward to a family trip to Sabah.
“We were supposed to follow my husband on a working trip.
“He was the most excited as it would have been his first time on an airplane,” she said.
“He was even talking about buying souvenirs for his teachers.”
Batu Pahat OCPD Asst Comm Din Ahmad confirmed the case.
Ahmad Ilham Fikri was laid to rest at the Kampung Parit Maimon Muslim cemetery at around 11.30am yesterday.
