Teens' morbid wish comes true

JEMPOL: Three close friends who had hours earlier expressed a wish to be buried in the same cemetery were killed in an accident involving four motorcycles at Felda Palong near here.

Muhammad Syahreedzwan Mohmad Abdullah, 17, Mohamad Aflin Norirfan Md. Jani, 15, and Muhammad Faizal Jamalludin, 13, died after their vehicles were involved in a head-on collision at 9.30pm on Friday.

Another friend, Mohd Mois Ikmal Mohd Nasir, 16, who was warded at the Kuala Pilah Hospital, has since slipped into coma.

The three youths died at a clinic in the Fel­da Palong 9 land scheme that same night.

According to witnesses, Muhammad Syah­reedzwan, Mohamad Aflin and Mohd Mois were on their way home to Felda Palong 16 on their motorcycles when they crashed into the vehicle ridden by Muham­mad Faizal from the opposite direction.

Muhammad Faizal’s brother, Rosli Jamal­ludin 31, said the three friends had earlier taken part in a gotong-royong to clean up a Muslim cemetery in Felda Palong 13.

“While cleaning the area, people overheard them talking about how they would like to be buried near a tree in that same cemetery. Muhammad Syahreedzwan then joked that since they wished to be buried close to one another, it would be better if they could be buried together at the same spot,” he said.

People who overheard their conversation, said Rosli, were later shocked to hear of the tragic accident.

Muhammad Syahreedzwan’s sister Suzi­yana, 33, said the families had decided to bury the friends at the same spot.
